    ohh do you have perfect nurses where you work?
    lol

    you can get into a groove and continue to improve your management of time but that all depends on what happens to your patients.
    i was doing great last night until one of mine went into repiratory arrest.
    goodbye time managament!

    I recently attended a time management seminar and they told us we should work to our biorhythm. I guess that means I shoud tell my boss I need to work shifts only between 1000-1400 and 1700-2000. LOLOLOL

    thanks for the replies and the chuckles!!!!! the biorhythm seminar, that's great

    dear nurse manager, my rhythm will only allow me to work from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. but I must be paid for eight hours and will need to have the easiest patient caseload as I have to be organized and time managed!!!!!

    just old micro
