Day to Day

My typical day kicks off with a team huddle. A meeting where we get our patient assignments and also discuss other pertinent issues. Next we meet with outgoing nurses to get shift report. Essential information required for patient care is exchanged during this time. At the conclusion of which I take responsibility and must do everything I can to provide stellar nursing care including getting information from the medical record or contacting other members of the healthcare team.

Advice for Getting Started

Here's the first step for high school students

Volunteer or intern at a hospital to gain exposure and guide your decision to choosing a preferred specialty. Don't worry you can change your specialty down the road. Get a head start and save by enrolling in your local community college and take prerequisite classes. Try not to "C" your way through these classes. Exceptional grades and a good understanding of the educational content is important. You will be saving lives.
