Being an awesome nurse often boils down to the ability to seemingly get 20 things done all at once while making it look like a walk in the park. Of course, this is an exaggeration…but if you’ve ever seen an experienced nurse manage his/her patients with apparent ease, you may have thought, “how on earth does s/he do it?”

In this podcast episode, we talk about how nurses get sh#% done through the effective use of smart time management, delegation and prioritizing. Awesome things we talk about include:

  • How do you know what your patient needs right now?
  • How do you know what to do first when your patient needs several things all at once?
  • You’ve got ten meds to give and only one IV line…which ones go in first?
  • What can you delegate and to who should you delegate it?
  • How do you start your shift to set yourself up for success?

I’d like to take a quick moment to let you know about our Crucial Concepts Bootcamp. To learn more about this online course geared toward pre-nursing students and students who have just been accepted into nursing school, check it out here .
