Its funny, because as a new graduate.. i find myself on this website daily looking up things such as: head to toe assessments, acute abdomen, DKA.. sure we are taught a lot in the 4 years we spend in school, but we are taught so much that we forget... did we learn that? sure we did.. but it never hurts to freshen your skills up!

I recall Benner's book.

Looking retrospectively, I can recall at what time I was at each stage in my career. I am now preparing to enter an MSN program because I realize I need to gain more knowledge.

Nursing is a wonderful profession!

I believe the author of that work I patricia Benner not Jane. the role of nurse has to remain dynamic each area of practice has unique skills. what I know now is that the more I know the more I know I do not know

From novice to expert. I think I have been through the process a number of times. Most recently in the last 5 years of a 24 year career. The experts and resources have changed but the basics never do.United States
