Abusing staff nurses to do "presentation"-- can they do this to us?! - Page 2Register Today!

How can trying to squeeze a 45 min class in the middle of a busy work day be a good environment to do so. There are so many other ways to get the information out without disrupting all the floor nurses routines and patient care.

You all need to express your concerns about this but come up with several viable alternatives. That way you will be seen as willing to learn and grow professionally but you want it to be done in a way that works for you. You will not be seen as whining if you stay on topic and do not get into no breaks and other complaints..STAY ON THE TOPIC. You can also suggest A TRAIL PERIOD as I find people are more open to change if it starts out as a trial.
