Hello, everyone..My first posting....help

  1. Hello, I was so thankful to come across this web site, while researching for an english paper. I have been reading entries in verious forums and sounds like, I am in the right place. I am working on pre-reqs. right now for RN program.
    This quarter is Math 98 and English 101. I have a paper, on a problem in my field of study, due very soon and need some help. I have been researching on line and haven't really found what I think will help. I chose to right my paper on pediatric nurses. Specificly, on nurse/patient communications. I want to found out what the problems are and ideas on how to fix them. I am allowed to use first hand stories that relate, to back up my paper; if you have a story or comments and wouldn't mind me quoting them in my paper, I would be greatful.

    I am looking forward to being apart of the nursing community.Thanking you in advance for your help.

    Right off the bat, considering you are writing about nurse patient communication for pediatric patients, what I thought of is the fact that you have to deal with the parents as well as the child. You need to assess the child's needs, but sometimes the parents are a barrier. Not all the time, but it does at times interfere with communication with your patient. Hope this helps, I havent worked in peds for a long time, but this is what I remember.

    Thank you for your reply. Yes I know it was from like two years ago. I never figured out how to check my replies. So here I am. Got on here two years later and finally figured it out. Well in the LPN program right now, 2nd quarter. Starting clinicals at the hospital this week. I am a nervous but excited. ECF last quarter was a good experience. Have to master efficiency in paperwork. Again thank you for your reply won't take 2 years to reply again.

    I got an "A" it went well. It has been a couple of years so I would have to dig it out to give you more details. It did stop and make you think about how kids are so smart and perceptive. No matter how much we want to hide and protect them from the bad stuff. We still need to just be open and honest with them; no matter how painful it may be. The paper I wrote was on kids and terminal/life threatening illnessess.

    OK, enough about the past. So tomorrow is first day of second quarter clinicals at the hospital. I now it will be a bid different then the ECF last quarter. I am really nervous but really excited. First rotation is in the 4CVU. Going to get patient and do clinical prep. Thursday and Friday hands on. Got to go for now. Glad to find new friends full of encouragement. Thanks.
