New nurse here four months into orientation...
I've been struggling with writing my narratives. Since I've been so used to banging out care plans
in nursing school
, it's been much more difficult than it should be to write my nursing notes or narratives.
It also doesn't help that I've had 7 different preceptors and everyone has their own style of writing their note.
Some people are very brief, some people write paragraphs.. Some people want me to write out my shift assessment, describe the patients as how I found them when I received them...even though I've already charted in the shift assessment flowsheet....
How do you guys write your narratives? Also, is there a good way to practice writing them?
