  1. yes you need to add color to your post so you could clearly see how you misunderstood what i was saying. i did not come here to argue whether nursing shortage exist or not. i came here to ask for additional information. i get that it's just some false advertisement. but that's what they want us to learn in class and that is what they want us to write a paper on. i have no choice. if you don't like that idea don't take it out on me. and since when what universe do you live in makes a well thought out comment. i'm so done with all these hostility
  2. thanks Esme and workingharder!!! they were really helpful insights. if that's the case mazy that's a shame if that is what people here automatically assume when people come here for help. Such a big shame that everyone else here think people who come here for help are all taking the easy way out of their homeworks and aren't using their critical thinking. also in my defense i have every right to be defensive when people resort to comments that does nothing but ridicule me. just how are those constructive criticism. how are they helpful at all. why is it that hard to be civil around here. people just go on the defensive and start attacking people. now that's taking the easy way out and not using critical thinking.
  3. i see thanks. i'm getting my facts from AACN American Association of Colleges of Nursing | Nursing Shortage
  4. first of all i don't understand and don't appreciate why people here take so much offense of what i've posted. the things that i stated regarding the shortage are something that i didn't made up or assumed on my own. i got most of them from AACN American Association of Colleges of Nursing | Nursing Shortage. I didn't put up this post to argue whether the shortage does exist or not. Also, concerning with nursing management and leadership. I don't think i'm being clear that the reason i'm mentioning it together nursing shortage is because in my paper i have to somehow tie those two together. So i was thinking leadership and management does not soley rest on high management or administrative positions, that registered nurses could also practice this two while giving patient care at the bedside. Why I'm concern only with nurses with a baccalaureate degree is because that is the scope of my paper. What's so offensive about that. what's with the comments what universe do you live in or you won't get further help with an attitude like that. who in their right mind wouldn't be offended with comments like that when all they're talking about in their post is simply something discussed in class hopefully this font is large enough to get that point across.
  5. i know i have posted this in a different forum but i'm trying to get as many helpful feedback as possible The last forum i posted this on gave me nothing but an uneducated feedback I have a paper due next week on nursing leadership and management we have to pick a topic and discuss how the topic we pick impacts or affects nursing leadership and management. the topic i obviously picked is nursing shortage so what i have so far in my outline is because of the shortage in nursing which are compounded and caused by: - deficit in nursing program faculties are limiting the number of enrollments - the rise in the elderly population calls for more nurses to provide health care - increasing stress levels due to insufficient staffing causes more nurses to leave the workforce. fewer nurses with leadership and management skills are being produced at the baccalaureate level. and that's where my problem is. i can't think of anything else. i wanted to state another or probably two more reasons in my paper. also by management i don't mean in administrative positions but nursing management and leadership that can be done at the bedside~ i'm not sure of this either. sorry if i have trouble finding the right words to explain things. i appreciate all the constructive criticism i could get.
  6. that's what you thought, but statistics show otherwise. you must be the one living in a different universe and never had a leadership nursing course in your nursing program. your comment had nothing to do at all with the question i posted. management and leadership does not solely rest with administrators and high level managers. nurses at the bedside could also practice leadership and management skills.

  9. We are asked to come up with practical examples of each of the 9 provisions of the nursing code of ethics. i appreciate any help i'd get and another thing, i'd appreciate too if comments are kept civil and respectful, this thing doesn't come easy to to me. thanks.

  10. i need serious help over here so i appreciate keeping any judgemental comments to yourself. i'm in trouble of failing my clinical anyways here's how i do my assessment in maternity. the flr that we are on by the way is postpartum. and we do the morning shift mother. 1. ask the mother when she last had a meal. 2. ask about her previous pregnancy. how is the current one different from the last one. 3. if she have other kids, i asked about their ages. 4. her support system at home. 5. do the physical assessments and question the mother for any changes in her status. -if vaginal i ask her about her bleeding if it was any different from the day before i was there. if she's c-section i check on her incision. - pain level. where if she is experiencing it. 6. do the hourly round safety checks. ~ suggestions on additional questions that i should ask the mother? 7. give teaching if needed - breastfeeding ~ when baby won't suck. i advice changing breast feeding position make sure the baby is parallel to the mother's breast, take off some clothing of the baby, mouth stimulation feeling the upper palate, introduce the nipple to the baby's mouth. i know my knowledge on breastfeeding is not superb so additional information about breastfeeding is appreciated. neonate ~ what other physical manifestations that may seem abnormal but is normal to a neonate such as dry skin, nasal congestion for a 1 day post partum (how long is this appropriate like is nasal congestion in a 3 day old post partum still acceptable?), acrocyanosis. diagnosis at the end of our clinical we have to come up with two nursing diagnosis that tie in with each other. that's where i'm having problems. the patients we get on our flr are usually healthy individuals. issues we often get are fatigue, breastfeeding ineffective, sleep deprivation, caregiver role strained, risk for , this wellness diagnosis abt. a parent's idealized idea of a healthy baby. so basically most diagnosis that we could come up with for our patients has to do more with their psychological and psychosocial well being ~ any suggestions for books? clinical handbook i could buy online. advices we'll definitely be appreciated.

    clinical experience over the summer

    so here's the thing. by the time i found out abt. externship programs it was already too late. most of the deadlines in jersey is over. so i was wondering if there are other programs like externship that i could get into over the summer to give me additional clinical experience.
  12. well besides my question on top, has any of you used Pearson's Pharmacology for Nurses: A Pathophysiologic Approach (3rd Edition) (MyNursingKit Series) by any chance, although they just put it out in the market. my instructor had recommended that our class use it. i know that opinions on what's the best nursing pharm book is highly individual but for me the way i see it is, it always comes down to either lipincott, mosby or saunders because in my opinion they have more experience in making nclex rn review materials. so they're experience in writting good nursing review materials gets carried along in writting books for nursing students. so, what do u guys think of the pearson? could it give lippincott, mosby or saunders a run for their money? or should i just stick with either one of the three publishing companies i mentioned
