What I have learned about nursing...from allnurses.com

  1. What I have learned about nursing from allnurses.com....

    OK, this will sound very naive from someone who wants to be a nurse, but I did not know that nurses (well, I guess mainly RN's) did care plans for patients :imbar

    I assumed that a care plan was made by their attending doctor and the nurses executed the orders.

    There are also many terms, acronyms, and abbreviations I've read on other forums and I have no idea what they mean.

    I guess I will in time, even though I'm going for my LPN now and hopefully RN in a few more years.

    I didn't know that RN's did careplans either. I always thought the physician did the careplans...that's interesting.

    Nursing Care Plans are NOT what physicians utilize when writing orders.
