I live in Sussex, currently been trained for 5 years . I'm a staff nurse in ortho.....
Where's everyone else from and what are you all doing?!
I have a brilliant unique name. I was the only one in my school however its now become really common. My full name however is completely unique and my patients always comment on it.
I do think though some names have negative connotations and alot of people when picking up a application may have pre existing thoughts about a person before meeting them.
Im currently working in the UK, Accepted to do my mentorship course however im a bit of a worrier. I hate academic work and really fail at writing essays so i always buy plenty of books to help assist me to know what is expected of me.
Does anyoen have any advice about which books are good to help me suceed and surive my mentorship course!!!!!
Any advice is much appreciated. I already have a bright and wonderful student as i have done the associate mentorship programme. Please help!!!!!
Hello . I'm new to N-Clex and I'm after some advise please:1) which is the best company to do it through? I'm in Uk.2) which are the best study guides3) is it expensive as I don't want to use a agency company as I have no desire to go out to US at present. It's something for future.Anyways if anyone can shed some light on what's best? I hear that Saunders is a good book? Thanks againFrom a Virgin N-clexer!!!
Hiya can i ask as im a bit new to Nclex. Can you do your nclex exam but not actually use it? im Thinking i might want to go when my child has grown up but not interested at the moment but actually i enjoy studying and do approx 4-6 a day when my daughter has gone to bed on different topics. I love to learn and i would love to do the Nclex exam. So can you do this?
also can you tell me where in the UK i can sit it? Im in the south east
Hiya Frazzled1!!! *waves*
I would suggest contacting your union. Its so important Newly quailified nurses recieve valuable feed back beacuase at the end of the day you need constructive feedback.
I woudl ask your manager to sit down with you. Identify a mentor whos shifts you can copy (if you have childcare issues choose someone that is on a similer rota). Ask your mentor to support you. Thats what there therefore. I qualilfied in sept 2007 and went straight onto the bank so no preceptorship for me!!! Its really hard being a newly qualiifed as it is.
Do you know where your going wrong? however i dont believe any nurse is wrong as we all have different ways of doing things and some nurses prioritse differently. i would try to get a system in place to work in a regulated enviroment. I have a system from the time i step on my ward and most of the time it works (exceptions when a emergancy arises)
I often make lists and on a sheet of paper whilst doing my drug round i label it say bed 1-8 in a bay and write down what each person needs ie. needs meds ordering, needs MUST updating ect and then that leaves me a list to crack on throughout the day.
Im very upset to hear your charge nurse constantly tells you off becuase actually thats not very constructive. I woudl expect him to identify the issues that he has witht the way you work so that you can either adapt it or change your system .
Im really sorry your having a horrid time managers cant see there arse from there elbow sometimes but you deserve to have constructive critisim. Its not rocket science!!! Hope all goes well with your meeting. You can always PM me for advice.
Could i also suggest a book for you to buy? It was writen by my Tutor at Uni but i found the advice very good.
Its called: The Newly Qualified Nurses's Survival guide written by Jackie Hole and adapted by Sue Hopkins.
