Nursing is my passion and has been since I met the school nurse in second grade; that is the time and age I decided my life's goal. I have trained and worked in all areas of nursing including but not limited to emergency nursing, the operating arena, neuro- and orthopedics finally finding my niche in the specialty of geriatric nursing.
I quickly realized how litigious our society can be, especially as it relates to the medical setting, which led my interest into the regulations that govern the health care field and the nurse's role in that area and his/her legal duty to the patient. I became certified in legal nurse consulting so I could play a role in keeping not only our institutions but our health care workers safe from being sued. I then found it advantageous to pursue my Masters in Science in Nursing/Health Care Education so I could expand upon my love of teaching and sharing invaluable information to young nursing students and nurses actively practicing. Documentation is the most critical skill a nurse must possess to document their findings, explain an incident or clarify an event. Nursing school teaches the very basics of this important part of a nurses' s day. This is an area I love to help nurses improve upon and to develop a skill set to carry with them throughout their career.
Test anxiety is common for most students, let's explore some personal causes of this stressor and find ways to reduce this anxiety so information being taught may be disseminated and critical thinking may take the lead. This is what makes a good nurse become a great leader and manager which should be an ultimate life-long goal. Let me share my experiences and help you develop the skills you must possess in this challenging career.
