Tomorrow is my third day of orientation and I want to show them I can be a great nurse even though I am very new.
How do you experienced nurses remember at what time all patients were sitting, out of bed, and all information and assessments that you did to each patient without writing anything down?
At the end of the shift I see these experienced nurses just filling out all of the paper work very very fast.
Me I feel like my brain gets blocked and I think to myself at this time in military time was my patient awake, sitting etc... and this is just one patient.
Any tips or is it just that my memory is not that great?
