.Nurse's notes


When I had my clinical at the hospital, I carried tons of papers on a clip board or a small note pad, but these are cumbersome, easily disorganized, and could cause cross-contamination. My last clinical period I noticed that a lot of nurses had single pre-made sheet of paper they made notes on. It was good enough to accommodate all their patients. I'm having trouble making mine. I don't know what I should have on it or shouldn't. Or the best way to save space. Or even the program to use. Can anyone help me create my own or post some templates.

I know at the hospital I do my clinicals at the floor has their own patient sheet behind the nursing desk. So ask a nurse if they have one available and if you can take one to make copies. I do have one a fellow nursing student made that I can post for you, but I have realized there are a few things missing, and it is very student-like. But I can email it to you anyways and you could just look at it to get an idea and edit it if you want. Message me and let me know!

Ask one of the nurses on your clinical site if you can make a copy of their sheet. It really depends on what kind of unit you're in. When I'm working on different unit, I have to change my sheet.

Thank you Daytonite! That form will come in very handy while pre-planning.
