T1 - Prioritization and professional development were missing for us - but it's hard to get that in a classroom! #RNchat 2/18/2010 21:15 TeriRN: @EllenRichter I agree. I also think that end of life care needs to be included. Having issues w/hosp RNs 4 2 of my pts who R dying. #RNChat 2/18/2010 21:15 nursingpins: 1974 -tail end of the old days :) #rnchat 2/18/2010 21:15 holisticnurses: T1 More clinicals! It wasn't until the 4th year that I had a 4 patient caseload. And competency skills starting immediately. #rnchat 2/18/2010 21:15 Footeja: T1 more cultural diversity would have been nice too. we were homogneous as students #rnchat 2/18/2010 21:15 Kineticycle: #rnchat T1 my ed was at a level 1 referral ctr. I got tons of clinical exposure, access to OR, ED, Trauma/Med/Cardiac ICUs even helicopter. 2/18/2010 21:15 NursingCenter: T1 - clinical skills & procedures. We had so much focus on history, theories, care plans, but not enough real practice! #RNchat 2/18/2010 21:16 CutePedsNurse: T1- nurses who wanted to take the time to teach the right way instead of shortcut. #rnchat 2/18/2010 21:16 nursingpins: RT @Footeja: T1 more cultural diversity would have been nice too. we were homogneous as students #rnchat 2/18/2010 21:16 holisticnurses: T1 Effective time management in a hospital setting too. How to communicate with other departments. #rnchat 2/18/2010 21:16 philbaumann: T1 Phil here (also the little man behind @RNchat ) Wish we had more osmosis with medical school, lectures from MDs, etc. #RNchat 2/18/2010 21:17 4 of 31 2/18/10 10:47 PM
  • 5. http://printyourtwitter.com/tweets.html TeriRN: @holisticnurses I agree need more clinical time and competency testing sooner. #RNChat 2/18/2010 21:17 EllenRichter: T1 I had very little "hands on" experience in my 4 yr BSN program. Did hundreds of pages of care plans, though! Still dont get that. #rnchat 2/18/2010 21:17 holisticnurses: Same for me. RT @NursingCenter: T1 - We had so much focus on history, theories, care plans, but not enough real practice! #rnchat 2/18/2010 21:17 grimalkinrn: #rnchat T1 Due to severe shortage of clinicals, I was placed in psych instead of a hospital for practicum. No opportunity to improve skills 2/18/2010 21:17 MHabershamSB: T1 - I'm a 2nd Career BSN - so my program was short, but I do feel that much of the theory was...less helpful? #RNchat 2/18/2010 21:17 bhawkesRN: T1 agree with all!! and therapeutic communication. Kreb cycle (lol) #RNchat 2/18/2010 21:17 Emergiblog: @philbaumann That is what the new PhD program at UC Davis is all about - working/studying with other disciplines (ie, medicine) #rnchat 2/18/2010 21:18 nursingpins: T1 Time management is most important now as @holisticnurses mentions. #rnchat 2/18/2010 21:18 holisticnurses: Great point, Phil! RT @philbaumann: T1 Wish we had more osmosis with medical school, lectures from MDs, etc. #rnchat 2/18/2010 21:18 TeriRN: @bhawkesRN NOOOOOOOOOOOO! Not Krebs cycle. =D #RNChat 2/18/2010 21:18 AbbieCitron: Exactly RT @bhawkesRN: T1 agree with all!! and therapeutic communication.

Kreb cycle (lol) #RNchat 2/18/2010 21:18 Emergiblog: Maybe skills need to be part of a post graduate internship; theory very important by not recognized until you've been practicing #rnchat 2/18/2010 21:19 nurseeducator: T1 @nursingpins excellent point abt time management! #rnchat 2/18/2010 21:19 grimalkinrn: @thesournurse - check out #rnchat tonight, if you can. 2/18/2010 21:19 5 of 31 2/18/10 10:47 PM
  • 6. http://printyourtwitter.com/tweets.html Trybarefoot: What about working in interprofessional teams to optimize patient centred care? Much opp to learn with other professions? #RNchat 2/18/2010 21:19 Emergiblog: I'm at #rnchat - come talk about nursing education! #rnchat 2/18/2010 21:20 Kineticycle: #rnchat T1 I could have learned some about the "business" of healthcare. How to be a better steward of our resources + linked to outcomes. 2/18/2010 21:20 Footeja: T1 how to really discern what is going on with the patient. I felt like a sponge. #rnchat 2/18/2010 21:20 lyall: G'day #RNchat just finished night shift so I'm going to sleep. 2/18/2010 21:20 EllenRichter: T1 But time management cant be taught. It has to be created as you develop skill & speed. #rnchat 2/18/2010 21:20 MHabershamSB: T1 - We had one sim with NP students, RT students, and Med students that was awkward, but would be helpful if done more often #RNchat 2/18/2010 21:20 nurseeducator: T1 I receive new grads who do not know the basics skills related to aseptic technique #rnchat 2/18/2010 21:20 bhawkesRN: @Trybarefoot Good because we need to work as a multidisciplinary TEAM #RNchat 2/18/2010 21:20 Emergiblog: @Trybarefoot Nursing would be better understood if interdisciplinary teams worked together and experienced what it actually is #rnchat 2/18/2010 21:21 grimalkinrn: @Emergiblog t1 #rnchat I do a lot of senior practicum and search out opps in pre op, ICU, for my students to practice skills. 2/18/2010 21:21 StephenNP: #rnchat Hello :-) 2/18/2010 21:21 NursingCenter: @MHabershamSB Great idea - we collaborate with other disciplines in the "real world" - why not while we're all learning? #RNchat 2/18/2010 21:21 TeriRN: @Trybarefoot I agree. Still too much us verse them in patient care. We need 2 work 2gether. Need for MDs 2 recognize RN contribution #RNChat 2/18/2010 21:21 EllenRichter: T1 I agree with @trybarefoot in that all health care disciplines should integrate education at various points thru the process. #rnchat 2/18/2010 21:22 grimalkinrn: @EllenRichter T1 #rnchat Time mgmt can't be taught, but you can help a new nurse 6 of 31 2/18/10 10:47 PM

Telemetry nurse. #RNchat 2/18/2010 21:22 nursingpins: T1 mentors for students will help teach time management - some schools are using mentors - would help all. #rnchat 2/18/2010 21:22 philbaumann: @Emergiblog It's good to see that - I think it would also make it easier for new nurses to collaborate with physicians. #rnchat 2/18/2010 21:22 nurseeducator: T1 @EllenRichter Time management can taught via learning how to prioritize #rnchat 2/18/2010 21:22 CutePedsNurse: RT @EllenRichter T1 But time management cant be taught. It has to be created as you develop skill & speed. #rnchat ~Agreed 2/18/2010 21:22 Emergiblog: T1 I'm an ADN grad; very little focus on nursing as a profession; had to wait until my BSN program to get that #rnchat 2/18/2010 21:22 NursingCenter: This is a great chat tonight - tough to keep up! #RNchat 2/18/2010 21:23 holisticnurses: T1 True @TeriRN! More hybrid courses with other disciplines could be helpful...social work, med students, physical therapists, etc #rnchat 2/18/2010 21:23 EllenRichter: T1 I wish I understood more about the industry of health care when I first graduated nursing school. I was totally wearing blinders. #rnchat 2/18/2010 21:24 Emergiblog: T1 Time management theory can be taught but expertise comes with experience; #rnchat 2/18/2010 21:24 bhawkesRN: T1 We've been challenged recently to teach critical thinking skills to new grads #RNchat 2/18/2010 21:24 Trybarefoot: @bhawkesRN Sooo true - such a challenge to get all professions to move beyond uniprofessional focus - and work interprofessionally #rnchat 2/18/2010 21:24 Footeja: T! I was so busy remembering A&P that I wasn't ready to hear about holism. I am more than ready now... #rnchat 2/18/2010 21:24 CutePedsNurse: RT @grimalkinrn @EllenRichter T1 #rnchat Time mgmt can't be taught, but you can help a new nurse organize their day.~>Exactly 2/18/2010 21:24 7 of 31 2/18/10 10:47 PM
  • 8. http://printyourtwitter.com/tweets.html Emergiblog: T1 I knew nothing but hospital patient care; no perspective on the profession and what opportunities were available #rnchat 2/18/2010 21:25 MHabershamSB: @bhawkesRN T1, meaning it's been challenging, or you've been encouraged to? #RNchat 2/18/2010 21:25 nurseeducator: T1 @Emergiblog agree re: time management theory #rnchat 2/18/2010 21:25 nursingpins: T1 A discussion of hospital culture (what to expect, politics etc. would be helpful) #rnchat 2/18/2010 21:25 Emergiblog: @footeja It's almost like you have to practice to actually understand topics like holism; you have to "do" to understand #rnchat 2/18/2010 21:25 holisticnurses: T1 Empowerment in nursing too! Patient advocacy, broad range of career prospects. I couldn't see the full picture of healthcare. #rnchat 2/18/2010 21:26 AbbieCitron: RT @Emergiblog: T1 I knew nothing but hospital patient care; no perspective on the profession and what opportunities were available #rnchat 2/18/2010 21:26 Trybarefoot: @EllenRichter what we refer to as providing opps for folks to learn "with, from AND about'" each other #rnchat 2/18/2010 21:26 bhawkesRN: @MHabershamSB Both. I feel critical thinking has attributes that can't always be taught. Like intellectual curiosity. #RNchat 2/18/2010 21:26 Emergiblog: T1 I could have done with a few courses on how to deal with screaming surgeons! : D #rnchat 2/18/2010 21:27 holisticnurses: Agreed. Talking about that honestly would have helped my reactions at a job RT @nursingpins: T1 A discussion of hospital culture. #rnchat 2/18/2010 21:27 philbaumann: RT @holisticnurses: T1 Empowerment in nursing too! Patient advocacy, broad range of career prospects. I couldn't see the full picture of healthcare. #rnchat 2/18/2010 21:27 Footeja: @Emergiblog I would love to hear more about "needing to do to understand." How long does that take anyway? #rnchat 2/18/2010 21:27 Kineticycle: #rnchat T1 I don't think u can teach critical thinking skills. U can only stimulate it to happen by asking the right questions 2 cultivate. 2/18/2010 21:27 EllenRichter: Good point! RT @holisticnurses T1 Empowerment in nursing! Patient advocacy, broad range of career prospects. #rnchat 2/18/2010 21:27 8 of 31 2/18/10 10:47 PM
  • 9. http://printyourtwitter.com/tweets.html nursingpins: T1 Looks like most nursing in the future will be outside the hospital - lots of rotations will be needed. #rnchat 2/18/2010 21:27 rnchat: Things are moving very nice! Very fast too! We'll spend a couple more minutes here and then move to the second topic. #RNchat 2/18/2010 21:28 Trybarefoot: @Emergiblog HA! I'm not an RN - but as a previous manager in healh care i could have used THAT too (re screaming surgeons!) #rnchat 2/18/2010 21:28 EllenRichter: I agree, Beth! >> RT @bhawkesRN I feel critical thinking has attributes that cant always be taught. Like intellectual curiosity. #rnchat 2/18/2010 21:28 Emergiblog: @kinecycle Critical thinking has to develop, steps can be taught but they must be integrated; again, the more practice, the better #rnchat 2/18/2010 21:29 nurseeducator: T1 Agree and great point @EllenRichter @holisticnurses re: empowerment in nursing and patient advocacy! #rnchat 2/18/2010 21:29 grimalkinrn: @Kineticycle #rnchat T1 I agree. I stymied a group of students several times today, but I think they learned by having to critical think. 2/18/2010 21:29 yvette2012: Yvette, 1st semester BS student. I feel that we've touched on many topics mentioned, but I'd prefer to focus on basics 1st #rnchat 2/18/2010 21:29 CutePedsNurse: T1 also that a new nurse should gave confidence in themselves and not be afraid to ASK questions. #rnchat 2/18/2010 21:29 seejanenurse: T1 I feel like I learned what I know now along the way with the help of other nurses. #RNchat 2/18/2010 21:30 Footeja: RT EllenRichter I do think Critical thinking can be stiffled though. How does that happen to nursing studnets and new RNs? #rnchat 2/18/2010 21:30 bhawkesRN: @grimalkinrn Hey, are you a clinical instructor? Yay! you #RNchat 2/18/2010 21:30 holisticnurses: T1 I appreciated specialty rotations like OB, Peds, & Psych but those could have been electives.

As life-long learners, this is great! 2/18/2010 22:00 EllenRichter: T2(3) I agree that RN to BSN to MSN programs online can work for currently employed RNs, but how do you do online RN from scratch? #rnchat 2/18/2010 22:00 TeriRN: @CutePedsNurse Posting wasn't so bad.
