I completely agree with this post about nurses needing to learn and get trained in using the computer programs at work.  When I was taught through my job, I was taught by someone who had only one day of training.  I had to base my knowledge off of what she remembered.  I also had to trust that she was doing it right and that she was showing me a good way to learn and remember.  If I would have had a day or more of training then I would have been ok with making mistakes and doing things wrong.  But when you are just thrown into something and then do it wrong it could jeopardize your job, especially when it has to do with patient information.

The Importance of Health Assessment
As a seasoned nurse I think I perform a pretty good assessment. However, reading the first four chapters of our textbook and doing the first lab exercise has reminded me about a basic concept that in our fast pace world we tend to loose sight of. That is the concept asking open ended and non-judgmental questions and then listening to the answers and asking follow up questions. Today’s healthcare environment doesn’t allow for much time but I realize I can better utilize the time I have by improving my assessment skills of asking questions and listening more to the answers I receive.
