Op here. After working as an extern for almost 7 months I can safely say that almost all of my previous post means nothing. Everyone is honestly too busy to care about the stuff that used to bother me as someone on the outside looking in. All of this stuff still happens but I'm too caught up in my own stuff to really care what my co workers do unless it's harmful
In some way.
Good thread; opinion changed with experience.
Thanks for the update. It's ironic, but a lot of people might find it difficult to admit that they're smarter today than they were, yesterday. It's also a pretty good indicator that you will progress toward becoming the kind of nurse you do
want to be. Most of us, I think, really do care about all of the myriad details of a patient's stay. It's part of the reason we are notorious control freaks. But it is an ongoing challenge to balance all of the things you would like to do, all of the things you can do, and all of the things that you have
to do, right away.
Best of luck.
