my orientation for the prn hospice position went very well.:d i spent 2 days in a classroom and then was able to ride with a nurse for days when she did her visits. the first day out, i jumped right in and did assessments on a couple of pts, then went back to the office to chart. i love the computer charting!!
then on friday, i went with the same nurse and did a couple of more assessments, drg changes and actually called a couple of md's for meds and charted everything.
so now next week, i will be assigned a couple of pts on my own to do everything. now i know why nurses love hospice care so well.
the nurse i rode with, gave me great reviews and told our supervisor i will be really great. also the rn that did orientation said that she was so happy to get a nurse that could jump right in and take off with little direction.
so thanks everyone!! who helped me through a difficult month last month!!
