Thank you all for your input....It is very much appreciated. I like the idea of asking what interests the unit nurses, but our leadership clinical has us working on many different units, different positions (managers, supervisors, staff, etc.). We are to create our own work days, and utilize what we learned in Leadership lecture. After my first day on my own today, I'm extremely excited. I feel like I'm getting a grasp of what being a nurse is like, meeting many new people and creating my own workday and accomplishing so much.
Since I won't have the ability to actually ask the unit what they would like to learn, due to time constraints and not actually getting to that floor till next week, I'll have to use some of your inputs. I do realize, as mentioned prior, it might be a little difficult having a nursing student provide a inservice especially if it's long and boring, which is what I'm attempting to avoid. We are allotted 10-15 mins, about whatever we want to teach, and I agree that I would like to avoid what many of these nurses already know. I want something inspiring, something exciting and fun, but also something educational. I really really do like the Nurse-related internet sites idea.....I'm just trying to figure out how to incorporate that properly. I also like the idea of doing something on how certain legislations or new impacts on nursing and healthcare. I think one thing that all of you agree on is something new!!!! so that's what I'm going with. THanks So Much!!!!!
