10 Ways to Make Yourself an Unfireable Nurse
In the past, you might have left work when your shift was up, just short of completing something (like charting — reasoning that you’d finish it up in the morning). Nowadays, it’s good practice to stick around that extra half-hour or hour it takes to get it done.
You may also consider coming in 15 minutes early so that you can get yourself organized before the workday begins. You don’t want to be the nurse who’s scrambling to get their patients in order.
