New Graduate Nurses! How to Start Your Day :)

Hello my loves!  This is Caroline with some motivation for your Monday!  And today we have::::
Tips for New graduate Nurses!!
If you are still a nursing student, please still watch, because one day this will apply to you ;)

Starting off with a great morning is crucial to having a great day!  Although we cannot control how our morning’s go, we can do our best to plan on having a track able system that works 99% of the time.

Here is my baseline morning routine:
1st get my assignment.
2nd check my patients’ labs.
3rd Get report in the room and greet my patient
4th Either get or check my patients’ morning vital signs.
5th Pull my first patients’ medications (if everyone is ok, I usually just go with the earliest medication scheduled).
6th while giving meds, I do a quick head to toe assessment and document it immediately.
7th See all patients, give their medications, assess & document.

If you are interested there are more great tips in my latest book:  New Nurse?  How to Get, Keep and LOVE Your First Job as a Nurse!  This can be found on my website! 
Love you guys!
See you next week!!
