I find these posts hilarious. I'm not a newbie but I'm not terribly seasoned either. I'm thankful for all that I've learned from the seasoned nurses but I don't go around trying to change the things that I deem "wrong". Recently, I precepted a student who was overly obnoxious about starting IVs in the NICU (she was with me for a total of 72 hours). She saw a couple sticks on some complicated kiddos and decided to write a paper for her class (the prompt of which escapes me - something she would teach the unit perhaps) about how to place IVs. She has placed one in her 18 month Nursing school career on a 4 year old. I'm definitely going to let her educate the unit on IV placement... jokes.
