Hello Everyone!

Another question for all of you.

What is the hardest situation that any of you have dealt with when it comes to patient education?

Thank you!

Abigail

Having students ask me to do their homework for them.

Hint: go immediately to your prefs and change your posting name to something anonymous. There's a reason AN strongly, strongly encourages this. Dollars to doughnuts your faculty are recognizing you right now.

Thanks for the advice, but I am asking these questions for an assignment for one of my classes.

Also, no one asked you to reply to my question. I'm not asking for your help at all, but thank you anyways.

Oh, so it was not homework, but an assignment? :writing:

From the OP: What is the hardest situation that any of you have dealt with when it comes to patient education?

It sounds like you were asking for a reply to your question. Or did you just want us to know what the assignments were in nursing school? Sorry if I sound rude, just calling it like it is...

I am looking for an answer to my question that I asked originally, about patient education. The first person who commented thought I was looking for answers to a homework assignment, but I am on here to gain knowledge and different points of view from experienced nurses. I am not on here to let people know about the homework in nursing school, and I wish that I could just get an answer instead of being bullied.

Oh for heaven's sake...

Anyway, as for the original question: teaching a patient who has no interest in learning, teaching a patient a complicated home care regimen, teaching a patient with a H/O non-compliace, having a surgeon come in and tell the patient something that is totally the opposite of what you just taught the patient.

If you think that is bullying, you will need a Much thicker skin to make it through nursing school!

Oh boy. First, you are not being bullied. Second, stop trying to get others to do your homework for you. Third, what has your research shown in regards to educating pts? We are more than happy to help you but we will not do the work for you.

Ummm, let me tell you how this place works. You ask a question by posting it. Lots of people read it. Some will answer it. See, that's because you asked for replies by posting it.

Which brings me back to the beginning. I hate being asked to do somebody's homework for them. Doubly so when I get attitude back for saying so. Since you, like, asked.

Oh , man.. you just dissed one of the leaders of the band here. Take some time to read some threads.. ya know get a feel for the forum.

To answer your question... the hardest situation is never having enough time for patient teaching... on the official basis. The nurse must constantly give a little information with each interaction and then put it together on a discharge summary.

an assignment is homework....we are happy to help but we need to know what you think first or what your research has revealed to you.

It is our goal here at AN to help students be the best nurse they can be...part of that is asking students to post what they think or have found out first. Sadly there are many who come for the purpose of having their work done for them....that is not what we do nor will that help you become the nurse you need to be.

What do YOU think would be a difficult hurtle to overcome when teaching someone about their health?
