HealthStream is giving away 2 Amazon Echo Dots to 2 deserving nurses each week this month (May). What is the Amazon Echo Dot? It’s a hands-free, voice-controlled device that uses Alexa to play music, control smart home devices, provide information, set alarms, and more! How about that at the end of a 12-hour shift?
Enter to win now through May 31, 2017. 2 new winners (10 total) will be selected each week and notified by email.
New nurses are in high demand, and new graduates face a number of transition challenges that can lead to low confidence and high turnover. In addition, replacing nurses is expensive, costing one to one and a half times an annual salary. HealthStream’s Nurse Residency Pathway uses an intelligent, analytical approach to help with managing and onboarding new nurses in a cohesive and effective manner.
As a nurse, you must effectively communicate in order to be successful in your role. Nurses must constantly express patient needs to physicians, write clear, yet concise notes that highlight the events of their shift and how patients are responding to treatment and care, and even clearly verbalize the events that led up the decision to call a code in a room that may be filled with chaos.
A recent report stated that patients often judge the quality of nursing care in a facility as being at the skill level of the least experienced and competent nurse. Take a moment to let that statement soak in, and think of the nurse on your unit to whom this applies. Is that nurse a brand new graduate?
