Here you will find a curated collection of nursing procedures.
After all, you have better things to do then rummage endlessly through the internet in search of what you need. And it will give my OCD (Obsessive Compulsive Disorder) something constructive to do.
Most sites offer only a smattering of clinical procedures. In addition, there are plenty of videos that are just downright bad examples of technique.
My intent is to collect all the best of those scattered videos onto this one website so it is easy for you to find whatever is needed quickly and easily.
Use this website p.r.n. (From the Latin “pro re nata” which loosely translated means “as needed” ) for a review of how to perform specific skills you haven’t been able to perform enough for it to become habit.
It will take a while to get your “sea legs” and feel confident in what you are doing. So stop by as often as needed. Check the Sitemap for a quick rundown of pages as I will be adding regularly to the site.
If you are a student, I’m figuring you are tired and stressed. Running from classes to work (one job or two?) then home to take care of chores, kids and spouse, followed by homework, care plans and studying for tests. Info shoved in one ear and falling out the other. Until you crash into bed, exhausted and in a coma.
Am I close?
So, take a deep breath and let me do some of the legwork for you.
If there are procedures that you'd like to see on this site, or questions you'd like to ask, feel free to contact me .
After all, I
may be in a hospital bed someday and when I look up at those young, bright eyes
and see you reaching for my arm to check where you are going to stick that IV,
I’d like to think I helped to make you the best at what you do.
(I didn’t say I was totally altruistic.)
And when (not if) you become that incredibly competent professional nurse, remember to pay it forward, and share a thought or two with the newest group of nurses following behind you.
OK, onward Nurses!!!
