    Nurses Give EHR Usage a Usability Rating of F

    Oh man, I just said something like that. Why can't nurse informatics bridge this gap more effectively? I envision the development of EHRs goes something like this. Developer: Okay, so let's sit down and develop an EHR for nurses. So tell ...

    Nurses Give EHR Usage a Usability Rating of F

    I started my career in medical records when everything was paper based. I took my first computer class right about the time things were starting to go electronic, so I was able to live in both worlds comfortably for a long time. I am the rare person...

    Nurses Give EHR Usage a Usability Rating of F

    This is a similar problem to what I deal with constantly. I will get dinged by an auditor that says something like "you didn't complete the blah blah blah on page blah blah blah". They will give me a printed copy of the document and it looks nothing...

    Nurses Give EHR Usage a Usability Rating of F

    Sad to say, I've used some that are way worse. And that's really saying something because Meditech is horrible.
  5. This is not news as it is something we have all experienced for a long time. Dealing with EHR platforms that are complicated and not user friendly has made our jobs more difficult. https://www.healthcareitnews.com/news/nurses-give-ehr-us...

    Two Job Offers

    My current position does not align with my goals at all. My boss is insane. I’m never getting out of there without some kind of black mark on my record. No one does. If I stay there I’ll get fired for something. They both seem to offer a l...

    Two Job Offers

    Thank you, I agree Whatever kind of Cade management I learn wouldn’t carry over to another position if I try to get a job doing case management someplace else, I wouldn’t have the eight kind of experience to be able to do my job, and it would be s...

    Two Job Offers

    Thank you for that insight. Protecting my professional reputation is something I hadn’t considered. As for my partner, she is usually spot on with things. She is rarely wrong, and you best believe it drives me crazy! So that’s why I asked. ...

    Two Job Offers

    Thank you. I cant stay at my job one more day. My boss is a crazy person, a non-medical person who hates nurses. He likes bragging about “going after a nurse’s license” and lots of way more evil stuff. He is petty and vindictive. Anyone wh...

    Two Job Offers

    I am in a horrible job that I am desperate to leave. I have been looking for a job with no luck for about six months. Suddenly I started getting calls for interviews. I was offered two jobs. One is to be case manager for a company that...

    First Nursing Job Dialysis Am I Stuck Forever

    Believe me, I have searched my soul and wish I knew what is going on. I do not have an NP degree. My degree is in management and leadership. Wish I had gone the NP route, but hindsight is 20/20. Anyway, since I have no experience in any other...

    First Nursing Job Dialysis Am I Stuck Forever

    I am not sure what it is that is hard to understand, but let me try again. I'll try and trim some of what I wrote before. My first job after nursing school was in dialysis. About a year after graduation I began looking for other jobs and got no...

    Is it like this everywhere now?

    You described my exact experience. Dialysis was the only place hiring, so did that. And actually acute dialysis is a great place to land if you want to go back to school. You can study while you dialyze a patient (but the on-call will kill you). ...

    Is it like this everywhere now?

    A piece of advice I got early on in my career - by my supervisor at the time - was “make it look good on paper”.
