    BSN or MSN Nurse Leaders...I Need Help Please!!!!!!!

    I appreciate your suggestions, I did however find your tone to be a tad assuming and condescending. I am not a lazy nursing student and I am not just hiding behind my computer emailing facilities. I did not wait until the last minute, I have been looking for someone to interview for 3 weeks. I did walk into a local doctors office and ask to speak to a nurse. She originally agreed to answer my questions, but then changed her mind and said she did not understand the question. I did go to a long term care facility where I was made to feel like I was bothering them and I could not even speak to a nurse manager. After the attitude I was given for even asking to speak to a nurse manager I am hesitant to just show up at any others. I have made several phone calls to home health agencies; again, no one willing to answer questions. Everyone is too busy, confused by the questions, unreachable, annoyed I would even ask, or can't be bothered. I have yet to find someone who is happy to chat with a nursing student looking for an interview. I will try your other suggestions and try my public health office or my school district. Thank you for your time.

    BSN or MSN Nurse Leaders...I Need Help Please!!!!!!!

    I should also include that I have contacted organizations in my area and have yet to find anyone willing to answer 4 questions
  3. Good afternoon everyone. I am currently enrolled in a Collaborative Healthcare class, and I need to interview a nurse leader. I need demographic information and 4 questions answered. I also need to include your phone number in case the professor needs a follow up or verification. If anyone is willing to allow me to interview them, please private message me. I am not asking for anyone to do my assignment, I just need someone willing to allow me to interview them and then I need to write up the assignment and summarize 2 scholarly articles relevant to my subjects title/position. I have had THREE nurses agree to help me and all three have been M.I.A.; my assignment is due Sunday :-O and I have been trying to find someone to interview for 3 weeks now. In addition to demographic information (initials, credentials, job title, etc.); these are the 4 questions: 1.Scope of responsibility: Major responsibilities, direct reports, and operational budget 2.Organizational mission, vision, values, and beliefs 3.Strategic planning related to ONE core competency (name the core competency) a) Provide patient-centered care b) Work in interdisciplinary/interprofessional teams c) Employ evidence-based practice d) Apply quality improvement e) Utilize informatics 4.Role of BSN-prepared nurse to support the strategic plan Thank you for your time :)

    Moving a patient with a knee injury

    Moving a patient with a knee injury

    (I am an ADN currently enrolled in a BSN program. I am not practicing as of yet) Good afternoon. I have been researching and I am unable to find the proper way to move the leg of a patient with a knee injury. Pt is s/p MVA. XR reveals a lt patella fracture. If the knee has not been immobilized yet, what is the proper way to move the patient's leg? I remember being taught to place your hands under the leg, palms up, with one hand superior to and one hand inferior to the knee joint to support the knee while moving the leg. Someone corrected me and said the proper way was to lift from the ankle and move the leg. But to me, this would put the knee at risk for further damage and possibly hurt the patient more. What is the proper way to move the patient's leg once the knee is immobilized with a brace? I am looking for experience, answers, and rationale please. Thank you in advance for your feedback :)
