    I think you being cognizant that you want to be detail oriented already puts you ahead of the game. Take notes throughout the day of your patients activity. I write to do lists that help me stay organized. As far as knowing when to contact the doctor...
  8. Feeling lost in my nursing career

    With my experience and having gone through the same thing, I think 6 months isn't fully enough to appreciate what the job has to offer. Sometimes particular ICU's are better to work in than others depending on what specific ICU you work in. If your h...
  9. What made you leave bedside?
