Staying organized: "brain" sheets/report sheets?

Nurses General Nursing


I am a rising senior (woo-hoo!) set to graduate in Dec---I would love to hear all the ways that you stay organized! Do you use "report or "brain" sheets that you made? Thanks!:loveya:

Yea, I could not function without my brain sheet! Some floors I worked had their own brain sheets for the nurses to use. I got used to the sheet the first place I worked used and I could never adapt to a new one. So I made my own on my computer and copied them. That way I was independent and had my own sheet, which was especially helpful when I was a float nurse.
