Hey all! I am a fresh new grad nurse on a neurology unit. I have ADD and my fears have been confirmed: multitasking is a challenge. Staying on top of all my 5-6 patient’s needs is quite difficult. I'm worried about making critical mistakes. I’m not sure how much my ADD is contributing or if I’m just experiencing regular new nurse struggles. Anyway..
Question 1: any coping strategies out there for inattentive ADHD nurses?
Question 2: does it seem more reasonable for an ADD guy such as my self to be in a more focused specialty like wound care or IV team? Would mental health units be good for ADD folks?
