    From Nursing Student to Professional Nurse

    From Nursing Student to Professional Nurse
    So I've still only been at my jobs a few days, but I am loving it. One thing I have definitely learned about, is what it's like to be on the “other side.” What does that mean?

    Leadership in Nursing

    Leadership in Nursing
    Coming from an era where women’s sports weren’t an option, I found the “new” team-building concept that was introduced in my last year of nursing school in 1972 very exciting! Learning how to build, manage, work with and lead successful teams to harmonious, well-run days was a welcome relief from memorizing the millions of potential childhood diseases, taking post-op vitals and ...

    Bedside Nursing Care by the Numbers

    Bedside Nursing Care by the Numbers
    I think we all can appreciate the argument. Nurses feel overwhelmed when the nurse-to-patient ratio is extended beyond our means. Not only beyond our means, but also when it borders on compromising patient safety. That has always been the source of our angst and distress. Having one nurse care for additional patients in a single assignment becomes cumbersome and borders on ...
