I thought that this would be a great way to develop a better understanding of the career and what it takes to care for others.

Now that my children are getting older, I have decided to take back the reins of my life and go back to school to become a registered nurse. With nursing, there can be very different scopes of practice.
Study #1 The study that was chosen reviews how problem-based learning can help improve critical thinking skills for nursing students in a clinical setting. We all know as nurses that when we go to nursing school, we learn a lot about theory, reading labs and what to do in “certain situations”. We learn about hypo and hyperglycemia, the functions of the heart, how to use dosage and calculation skills if the power goes out in the hospital and lastly, how to write in APA format.

Code Sepsis Intervention Practicum has been a great opportunity for me to connect and integrate all the knowledge I have acquired through out this program into a more effectively clinical practice.
