    I am a new nurse and want to pursue plastic surgery as well. I am having the hardest time even getting a med surg job in the area I live (which is not a small town). I would greatly appreciate someone giving me the opportunity to get CCU or ICU experience so that I may further my career in surgery. It just appears that everyone wants at least 1 to 2 years experience. Okay, how do I get that? Any help will be greatly appreciated.

    I don't know if this will help you or not, but, think of mapping like this. All of the info you would put in a care plan e.g. nursing dx, Subjective/Objective Data, Meds, Hx, Goals, Outcome Criteria, ....Assess, Treat, Teach, Prevent....okay, all of that in separate little boxes or bubbles (your design) ...the only thing I don't include on my actual map is rationales...and if you have to have those listed do it on a separate paper. There is a great website I found that is very user friendly once you are ready to put it into map form ... . Look under concept maps and chose create your own.

    So, in a nutshell, the map is kind of a connect the dots thing. It takes all of the elements of the patient/pt. nursing care to create the big picture.
    I hope that helps. I have done many...just finished one up this morning in fact. Good luck. Have a great Day.
