Hello, dear RNs, today as I face the honorable merging of my life into the respected career of nursing in just few short weeks, there is one thing that I really wanted to ask all the experienced nurses on this forum.I had an instructor back when I was level 1, and she literally knew EVERYTHING about nursing, from diagnosis to interventions, s/s, research data. Since then, I admired mastery and "knowing your stuff" like her, and really looking forward to learning about whole bunch of stuff to increase my knowledge in nursing and other healthcare aspects.I understand that nursing journal is a good place to start, and also nursing/medical research journals are also good resources. Anyways, what do you do to become the "super-knowledgeable, sharpest nurse" in your own time? Do you read journals, textbooks, go to classes, etc? I would love for you all to post some advices for me to excel as a nurse after academic setting. Sincerely, thank you.
