What is Nursing Report Writing

1 job, 3 generations: nurses

... works on a premature and neonatal ward, where she takes care of a maximum of six patients. She works in shifts (from 6.15 a.m. to 2 p.m., from 1.15 p.m. to 8.30 p.m. or from 8 p.m. to 6.30 a.m.) and works 40 hours a week. Depending on the shift, there can be more. Her favorite shifts are early and late shifts. After the early shift, she enjoys jumping in the lake and before the late shift, she enjoys doing sports.

“We're almost always full, so I'll take care of six babies. I can do that, of course, but the level is really high. One-to-four care would be super good. I would then have more time, for example to talk to my parents. They are totally grateful. And confident! They google everything and then hole me. To be honest: If the tone fits, I think that's good; is their child, and just because I have more knowledge, I am not above them. But this hierarchy is alien to me anyway.

I like working in a team, with my colleagues anyway, but also with the doctors. It's working on an equal footing. I almost never experience that a doctor treats us nurses from above. Nurses and doctors are totally dependent on each other; we sisters are close to the baby and also notice small changes.

I'm friends with two or three colleagues who are about the same age as me. We also go shopping, having breakfast or going to fitness and partying on the weekend before the late shift. The older ones tend not to be there, almost all of them have children and spend their free time with their families.

By the way, my mom was also a pediatric nurse, maybe I have it in my genes. When we talk, I really notice how great our time is today. Medically, a lot is possible, premature babies, for example, have a real chance of life from the 23rd week of pregnancy. From the 23rd week! Because I'm not in the intensive care unit, I'm very, very lucky. When the birth weight-under-a-kilo-baby is allowed to go home after weeks of feeding, I am totally happy.

But high-tech medicine is also changing my job, progress is really rapid; It goes without saying that I already operate umpteen devices today. I believe that my generation will be very much confronted with ethical issues. Does everything that is feasible also make sense? I would like to study myself, the nursing care offers are growing at lightning speed. "
