    I know what you mean. We had a test that included like 15 or so questions about ABG's!! THAT is one skill most nurses need to know and be able to interpret quickly!!

    I often ask my fellow seasoned nurses if they teach students how to give a bath, make a bed, take a set of vitals, clean up after themselves and (especially) incontinence/diaper care or if they are only taught how to delegate those tasks to the PCA??

    Things certainly have changed a lot over the years. I know we had tests on proper hand washing (we were watched in the BR and graded!), how to make a bed, give a proper bed bath, etc.

    Seems the noobs just want to delegate these things to the overworked PCA's while they sit, rather than ever do them themselves!!
