Apparently this thread was moved from another forum to the Nursing Student Assistance Forum. I usually do not allow any "student nurse eating" in this forum. Sorry this occurred, tiaranny. We hope you will continue to post, but if you do, make sure you post in this forum. It is generally a safe place for students to ask for help with homework assignments, etc.

As a student myself, I feel your pain, but allnurses.com is not the place to complete your homework assignments. The purpose is to get you out into the community interacting with nurses. I don't know how far along in your education you are, but you will find that doing anything at the last minute will not be conducive to success...and allnurses.com is not your one-stop-shop for hit and run interviews. Good luck with your future endeavors.

You will be a wonderful nurse...well said:yeah::yeah::yeah::yeah::yeah:

My original title was changed by the admin. Sorry about that .

Actually, this is a week-long homework. he instruction to us is to interview nurses in some hospitals. We interviewed nurses personally but a number of them refused because they were too busy for their shift. As a result, we had 4 nurses who wholeheartedly helped us. That's why I joined this forum to gather information to nurses here because this is my last and only chance. But it turned out to be the way I didn't expect ever. Sorry to disappoint you guys. I understood what you were pointing out. To clear your minds, it's not that I'm being defensive all of a sudden, I am not a procrastinator and will never be because I know time management. I was just hoping. Anyways, this will be my first and last attempt. Thanks anyway. I'm back to square one.

Ahm, for those who defended my side, thanks so much. I appreciate your effort. :)

Sweetheart......there are other ways to speak with a nurse. You can try at the "minute clinics" at CVS or Walgreens/Walmart. Check with your local school nurses to see if they will set up a time or talk to you over the phone. You town's Department of Health usually has a nurse or two or even your town's senior center or senior services. You can make an appointment with your MDs Nurse Practitioner or office nurse/manager (If she is an RN) you can also try one of those outlying "Doc in a Box" places or "walkins" and see if there is a nurse there who can talk. So there are a few other places you can find a nurse.....you can also got to any B/P screening events or flu clinics for some nurses there.

There are many of us here that believe coming to an Internet forum isn't the way to conduct an interview. The interview process in nursing is an important nursing skill and is a huge part of the nursing process of an assessment, as much of a tool and a thermometer, pulse ox or stethoscope. There is a TON of information that can be obtained by facial expression and body language that will better enable you to effectively care for your patient.

I believe had you included this in your original post that your answers would have been completely different. AN can be a harsh environment to be in and we have all felt it's sting at one time or another. MANY students come her in hopes that this is "Give me the answers.com" and become extremely upset when we ask to see some initiative for their work so we know better how to help them and teach them how to do it for themselves. When we ask to see what you have done it is only to help you better without giving the answer and to make you the nurse you want to be.

To all nurses here, I have few questions to ask. Research project is due Friday. That's November 18, 2011.

Question #1: Do you research about new nursing interventions and remedies? (like new trends)

Absolutely, and I always make my CEUs about new procedures

Q#2: If yes, what kind of procedures? If no, why and what are the hindrances why you don't read articles?

The procedure differ but I try to keep up with stroke, STEMI, emergency medicine, and subscribe to several online resources and professional journals

Q#3: Do you apply what you have learned to the hospital setting?

I did when I worked

Some things are applicable and others were not apart of hospital policy yet,

Q#4: Do you share what you have read to your co-nurses? Do you inform and educate your clients regarding the procedures for continuity of care?

Sometimes, but usually at work there was no time. I have ALWAYS kept my patients informed and educated about their care....it's a joint effort.

Please help me... :( I badly needed your responses. Please...

I don't think pointed and/or questions designed to help students learn the process of finding answers themselves is always adversarial. In this case it may be better that someone learn that replacing the instructions with something else in a research project no matter what the reason serves to negate whatever results are obtained, as Esme pointed out above.

Even though it isn't the type of research that uses a petri dish, it's still important to stick to the original parameters or consult with your instructor about your dilemma (nurses too busy to be interviewed) That way the integrity of your assignment is maintained and you learn that even if things don't work out as planned to deal with the discomfort that is caused by sharing that without any effort to dissemble.
