I really struggle with giving report and thinking about it gives me anxiety when the shift is coming to an end. I feel like we never got really good practice in nursing school
and were basically just thrown into it once we started, expected to know exactly what to say. I also think some nurses get frustrated with me when my report takes too long, which usually happens because I don't want to miss anything important. I know there was just a recent thread about it, but I'm looking for advice about how to make my report more concise and thorough, while leaving out useless information that I think is important (which really isn't). How do you remember everything? I feel like I write so much stuff down and then when it comes time to give report my mind goes blank, or I accidentally skip over something I wrote down. I usually spend the entire car ride home after a shift beating myself up over what I could of/should of have said and what I could have left out. Any advice would be much appreciated! Thanks in advance!!
