Charge Nurse (RN) Advice

Q: What do you wish you knew about your job when you first started out?

Charge Nurse (RN) in Eureka:

Charge Nurse (RN) in Overland Park:
"Prioritize."
There is too much work to be done to get it all done, especially when the facility is full or management assigns 1.5 Halls of work. Prioritize and get the most important things done.

Charge Nurse (RN) in Portland:
"Treat every person with respect and equally."
Treat everyone equal, from housekeeper to coworker to doctor with respect. Praise in public and discipline in private always. Work as harder than your staff. Start each day with a positive attitude because your mood sets the stage for the entire departments mood. If you become stressed out or find yourself getting upset or frustrated step away from the charge desk and your staff and collect yourself. They look to you in times of stressful situations and need a leader who is calm, collected, and a charge nurse who is confident that the team can handle any situation that is thrown at them. Remember that nursing is a job that you learn from each and every shift. The moment you think you know it all is the moment you could possibly make a serious mistake I learn something new each and every day either from my co-workers or my patients. Finally the minute you no longer love being a nurse and caring for patients you need to retire or find a new job. No one likes a crabby nurse. Good luck!

Charge Nurse (RN) in Orange:
"Work hard."
Working hard wothna happy heart. Stay positive and help each other out. You're a team.
