I can communicate with patients in a compassionate way in which they feel comfortable with me being a part of there care. I am able to perform a thorough assessment on my patient determining some abnormalities. I felt comfortable speaking about my patient in the SBAR format. I also felt comfortable speaking with my preceptor and asking questions. I was able to verbalize proper medication administration technique while educating the patients about what they are being given. If I did not know the medication, I looked up the medication in the cerner system before entering the room with my preceptor. I also believe I take corrections from the nurse in a very constructive way. I do not let it upset me, rather I write down her suggestion and asked to speak through the skill so I can improve for next time.Improvement I believe I need improvement in pharmacology. Although I am able to recognize common medications such as beta blockers, the intensive care unit administers medications that I am not familiar with. I would like to become more knowledgeable in critical care medications by the end of this semester. I would also like to improve how I interact with the doctors and advanced practice nurses on the unit. I felt timid speaking with them and I did not communicate in the way I felt like I should have. I would like to gain confidence rather than fear I will say the wrong thing. I also believe I need improvement in time management and how to arrange the day. We only had 2 patients however I did feel scattered and would like to improve on that. Objectives and PlanIn regards to pharmacology I would like to set the goal for myself to learn two the three new critical care drugs weekly. I would like to know how they work, why they give it, potential side effects, and different interactions. I would like to make notecards for this. I believe this would also be a good study tool. I would like to improve my communication with doctors by practicing in my head what I will say in my head before actually saying it. Ensuring I know all the facts. I believe communication and time management are skills that also improve with time. For time management I would like to sit down before starting the day and make a check list of everything that has to get done with the times next to it such as medications and assessments. Seeing my day at a glance and being able to check things off is something that I feel may help me be less scattered during the day.
