nursing assignment ideas

  1. Hi, am a 3rd year student in Australia and have to write a paper on "Contemporary Challenges facing the newly registered nurse".
    Does anyone have any ideas on what to write about, perhaps a challenge you yourself have faced....

    Would be interested to hear any ideas...

    Thanks, Joh

    Well I am still in school.. But the main thing I hear fellow graduates complain about is the lack or length of their preceptorship when they start working... Especially with the lack of nurses and heavy load of patients it makes it hard for that nurse to take the time and properly orient the new RN to the unit and how things are done..

    Joh I know when I graduated and got out in the work force the reality shock they told me about towards the end of school was so true but it really hits you when your knee deep in a busy schedule and totally swamped. Maybe a paper on this frequently forgotten subject.

    Did you check out the Aussie forum????Brian just made it !
