I know doctors have to do this, but i'm wondering if a nurse at any level especially one with a masters degree or higher have to dictate their patient findings. I use to be a medical transcriptionist and one of the main challenges of the field was trying to make out a word, phrase, or sentence that the physician recorded because he/she was talking too fast, too low, heavy accent, noise in the background, you name it.:uhoh3:

I understood that they had more than one dictations to complete on a busy schedule, so is that the case with nurses too?:confused:

I only dictate if there is something out of the norm...

Usually my backup does the dictation if they do a CS or assisted vaginal birth (forceps or vacuum)
