I need help with these nursing questions

  1. 0
    Hello everyone I need some help with an assignment I have for my nursing class. There's questions that I must get from researching nursing threads and topics. And I'm asking this topic here because I need to get some feedback from experienced nurses. Any feedback would be greatly appreciated. Here are the questions and I would highly appreciate it if a nurse can answer them, sorry for the inconvenience.

    1) What is the perception role of the registered nurse?
    2) Has the perception changed since first entering into nursing?
    3) In what areas do most nurses work on?
    4) Was different types of communication needed in each specialty area? If, so how did the communication differ?
    5) With whom do nursed communicate most frequently?
    6) How important is communication in a nurse/client relationship?
    7) What are some insights and tips that one can receive from a nurse to enhance communication with clients and others?

    These are the questions and I would gladly appreciate if anyone can help me out. Thanks

    If I happened to be your instructor, and assigned you this task, how do you think I'd react if I found this post on this forum, which is read by 100s of 1000s of nursing professionals?

    Have you asked nurses at your clinical site?

    I am happy to help...did your instructor specifically ask you to go on social media sites like this to get your answers or did they intend for you to go and interview nurses face to face.

    By the way I don't perceive them as clients....if they were my clients I could bill them....they are patients.

    the questions are a little vague too. Whose perception are we considering? Why don't you put in your comments and let us discuss them?

    My instructor said we can either go and interview a nurse or get the answers off research. I can't interview a nurse since I don't know one so I'm asking the questions on nursing sites to see if I can get some answers.

    She said we can interview a nurse but I can't do that since I don't personally know one because I'm a pre nursing student. So I decided to ask them here to see if I can get some answers .

    I don't get you. Isn't this task to get answers from professional nurses? so what's the problem with professional nurses reading it?

    Because there are terms of service that we adhere to, in terms of helping students with homework and assignments; as well as you have specific terms in matters of education; at lot of colleges do not consider social media "research"-at least my college did not consider it research, and I graduated over a year ago; this is a social media website.


    I thought you were a nursing student personality; I thought you should try to interview nurses from your clinicals; research is, to me, looking up various nursing theory articles that are available on CINAHL where the questions that you posted are found in many articles there.

    Our format here is for you to start a conversation, we will chime in, and hopefully you will get your questions answered-IF this is acceptable with your school's policy.

    You can always call up a local hospital and speak to a nursing department; state that you are a pre-nursing student and you want to interview a nurse, and go from there.

    Also, you have no idea whether the people answering you ARE registered nurses. We could be the truck driver or chicken farmer next door for all you know.

    Aha. You don't have to know a nurse personally, but you should go and find one. This is your first such assignment for a reason not just to send you scurrying to a keyboard.

    OK, so I get you don't know where to go. Part of your faculty's reason for giving you this assignment is to get you to go out there and speak to an RN face to face. A big email blast is not a substitute for shoe leather. AN is not Google.

    See, in nursing, you have to learn to speak to a lot of people you would not otherwise encounter; you might find yourself out of your comfort zone. This is part of nursing, a huge part.

    So if all you do about learning new things is "Go to the keyboard and hit send," then you are limiting your chances of actual learning a valuable skill you will need all your working life. Also, your faculty will not be impressed by your citation of an anonymous nurse on the internet.
    That said: Where will you find a nurse? Think outside the (computer) box.
    Local hospital: go to the staff development/inservice education office and ask one of them. They value education and will be happy to chat or to hook you up with someone who is.
    Go to your school nurse.

    Go to the public health department downtown. Ditto.
    Go to the local school and ask to speak to a school nurse. Ditto.
    Go to a local clinic / physician/NP office. Ditto.
    Go to the local jail and ask to speak to the nurse there. Ditto.
    Notice all of these say, "Go to..." and not "Email..." Remember that part about meeting new people face to face and comfort zone.
    Go!
