Hello, dear RNs, today as I face the honorable merging of my life into the respected career of nursing in just few short weeks, there is one thing that I really wanted to ask all the experienced nurses on this forum.
I had an instructor back when I was level 1, and she literally knew EVERYTHING about nursing, from diagnosis to interventions, s/s, research data. Since then, I admired mastery and "knowing your stuff" like her, and really looking forward to learning about whole bunch of stuff to increase my knowledge in nursing and other healthcare aspects.
I understand that nursing journal is a good place to start, and also nursing/medical research journals are also good resources. Anyways, what do you do to become the "super-knowledgeable, sharpest nurse" in your own time? Do you read journals, textbooks, go to classes, etc? I would love for you all to post some advices for me to excel as a nurse after academic setting. Sincerely, thank you.
