Nursing is nursing regardless of location and field. You will nurse a patient! Your license validates your qualification! But your experience validates your skills and profession, which you will obtain as you practice nursing. One doesn't learn all in Nursing school. You'll have to commit to learning and then applying your knowledge. MedSurg is hard and things may change quickly! For example: arrive to unit after report on new admit you assess them and all of a sudden after a breathing treatment they are having an MI! You haven't assessed your other 6 patients now you have to make plans to transfer them to ICU and new orders from MD! Unknowingly what the next patients are besides in report they were stable and now......it's adrenaline time! not to mention night shift!
I said MedSurg but this could possibly present in Rehab as well...each patient is individualized with some common problems as other patients. You must not have a redundant attitude but optimistic and ready to learn and be active! Regardless! your patient population or patient condition may be redundant...but you shouldn't! Seek more ways to learn and improve your communication skills, assessment skills, management skills, peer leader skills, and teaching skills. In nursing it's always something to do! Check out DVDs, read journals, go online, attend specialty training!
Even in home health nursing,,,,,Your goal is to improve patient overall well being! If you stay patient focused! (passionate) then you will be rewarded endlessly and nursing will become part of your daily life even at home and in community! :heartbeat
The nursing profession is not limited to what your routine is in the hospital! Explore it! :heartbeat
