Becoming a Better Nurse

As a nurse, I want to be as knowledgeable as I can. This means branching out and continuing my training so that I am a valuable member of my doctors team. One of the ways that I am furthering my education is by taking preoperative assessment courses. These courses will teach me everything that I need to know about reviewing patients prior to their surgeries. Helping the sick and injured has always been a passion of mine and I want to do everything that I can to help. I have already scheduled my courses, now I am just waiting for them to start. In the meantime, I am doing everything I can at work to gain as much knowledge as possible in my field. My goal is to become one of the most knowledgeable and helpful nurses in the area.
