Articles

If you need a break from your own reality, but have no hesitation or shame about diving directly into someone else’s, you’ll find just what you are looking for at nurseguidance.com. Nurse Guidance is a site dedicated to nurses’ stories, ideas, experiences and advice.

Our articles are written by nurses, for nurses. Our nurse writers are out there, on the front lines of health care, interacting with patients every day. They write about the practicalities of nursing, the oft-forgotten but essential art of nursing, and they tell their stories – the likes of which most people (ie. non-nurses) would not believe or understand.

Written from the perspectives of clinical nurses, nurse managers and nurse practitioners, some stories might make you laugh or cry, and all are certain to resonate with you one way or another.

  • Take a look at “To Be a Nurse: Mortality, Sadness, and Other Things You Don’t See on TV,” for a vicarious experience in grief.

  • Read BJ Strickland’s (RN-turned-attorney) informative articles about nursing laws, rights and responsibilities.

  • For a boost of adrenaline, “Code 5, Room 623!” is a can’t miss.

It's all there, in Nurse Guidance, the place where nurses are there for each other.

PEDIATRIC NURSING | Tips for Success

I love pediatric nursing. Kids have such resilience and bravery in the face of illness, and it was truly an honor to provide nursing care to them for so many years. While pediatric nursing is a ton of fun, think wagon rides, and bubbles, it also can be frightening, due to how different it is from other areas of nursing. This video will cover my tips and tricks for planning your day as a nurse, nursing student, or NP with pediatric patients. I’ll go over how to assess them, my trick for getting blood pressures on squirmy little legs, and how on earth you can get a 5 year old to take their lasix. Read More[..]
