    Time Management

    So I just started my first job on a post surgical unit and I really love it. I am currently managing 3 patients and it is just so overwhelming. It is not the nursing part that I find overwhelming, I can do that; but the paper work! The hospital I work at uses both a computer chart and a paper chart. Doctors come an write orders and it takes me a while to figure out that they have written a new order. Also is it me or does every patient have meds at the same time, so I give some of my meds late (past hospital policy 1/2 hr). It is really hard to keep track of everything I have to do. I stumble around questions that are asked to me about the patient because I just don't have time to go and read the entire H and P (unlike nursing school). Any advice for this new grad? Does it get better?
  2. I am a nursing student. I am doing research into why people become nurses and I was wondering if anyone could do me a huge favor and fill out this small survey. Why did you choose nursing as a career? How long have you been working as a RN? What type of nursing education programs have you completed? Do you have a specialty area? What types of settings have you worked in as a RN? What type of setting are you working in at this time? [*]What do you like about nursing? [*]What are some of the challenges that make nursing difficult at times? [*]What are some of the benefits you see to being a nurse? [*]What are some of the strengths and challenges for health care delivery in the 21st century? [*]What advice would you give me, a new nursing student? [*] Do you like the people you work with? [*]Do you find it difficult working with other healthcare providers such as Doctors, physical therapist, etc?
