introduction

  1. :chuckle Hi there, my name is Adele and I am working in pediatrics in New Zealand. At the moment I am doing a post grad paper in child health, and one of my assignments I have chosen to look at "nursing the adolescent in the pediatric ward". If anyone can help, I would appreciate it..

    hi adele,
    Welcome! just like you, I'm new in this website. Got to tell you though that I haven't had that much experience yet as an RN. I only practiced as an Ophthalmology nurse and as an OR nurse for barely a year in each field. Right now, I'm taking a review for NCLEX and hope to work as an RN in US by 2005. Anyhow, I just have my lecture on Pediatrics this morning and I hope this helps: I think you have to focus on the developmental tasks of an adolescent- Psychosexual , Psychosocial, Moral etc. as viewed by Freud and others and how they cope when they're ill. You can also do interviews or research on your target age group or the parents perhaps, ersp. when you work in a pediatric unit.

    How's frustration? Recently Licensed VN, upgraded after 10 years as CNA/CHHA in Home-Health. No jobs available unless I have 1 year experience in a clinical setting (as VN). What "nursing shortage"? I'm very professional, look it, act it, yet no one wants to hire me! I'm grateful I can vent here, with Brothers & Sisters who UNDERSTAND! This is a safe place, glad I found it! (Job rejection is fanning the coals of frustration into flames of anger! {at the world})
