Introduction – Nurse’s Time Management
Naturally, the life of a nurse is filled with activities and sometimes it goes non-stop to an extent that you feel overwhelmed and wish you can just get a break. Well you can, but you’re going to need appropriate time management skills which is what this course will be showing you. It is possible as a new nurse to run the risk of burnout because you want to gain experience as much as possible which might see you attending to a lot of things at the same time with no free time whatsoever for yourself. Now cast your mind back to when you were a nursing student, if you can remember very well, your life was practically chaotic. I mean you had to combine all the responsibilities of school plus your personal life and basic physiological needs; it couldn’t have been easy but then getting into the provision of the service to patients can itself be even more overwhelming than you can imagine because it’s a different ball game compared to nursing school. While you might have learnt some time management skills in nursing school, you’re going to need so much more in the world of healthcare as you will have various activities that you will need to attend to while at the same time ensuring that it does not affect your personal life.
You need to understand that great nurses don’t appear overnight, but arise as a result of learning from experience and adopting effective time management skills. So, effectively managing your time and tasks will ease the transition from feeling overwhelmed to being in control. Take for example, as a newbie nurse, you have the telephone ringing which you are meant to answer, there’s a patient that urgently needs your help and then a senior nurse wants you to learn one important thing about caring for patients with a particular kind of ailment; you sort of get stuck and you’re not sure which one to do but appropriate time management skills can help you deal with such conundrums. In fact, learning how to effectively manage your time will most likely allow you to deliver better quality care, achieve more each day and feel less stressed while doing your job.
