Nurses are pretty traditional, even if they think that they are not. Nurses learn to be nurses from the beginning of their educational program. There is one way to do things and it is difficult for them to embrace change. Of course change happens and nurses have to relearn and adapt, but it is not easy for them.
Take the computer age. At one time this was not the norm, believe it or not. Especially in nursing. Business people used computers, but not nurses. Today, of course, everybody uses the computer. We no longer even talk to each other. We email each other and wait for the answer. I remember going to a doctor one time and on my way out I thought of a question I had wanted to ask the doctor and didn’t. I told the nurse and even though she was feet from his actual office, she emailed him and we had to wait for his email back. I thought, this is crazy. She can’t go to his office door and get an immediate answer? It doesn’t make sense but I know that today this is how everyone comunicates.
So, what happens to the older nurses that did not grow up on the computer? Well, obviously, she had to adapt if she was going to survive in the profession. She had to learn how to use the computer first of all, and adapt to all that it means. She had to go out of her comfort zone and do as every one does today. Just an example; medication administration has changed drastically. No longer do pills come up from the pharmacy in bottles. They are individually packaged for a patient. Nurses no longer have to order meds every day to ensure their supply. Med carts are used and the pharmacy fills it reguarly and returns it to the floor. Medication cards are not used. Nurses use the kardex to administer the correct meds to patients and signed off as they are given. All of this ensures more safety for the patient.
Anyway this is just one example of how things have changed in the medical world. Nurses have to adapt. I remember how one of our home care nurses came into the office one day and was all excited because he had started his own business. We all expressed enthusiasm for him and supported him, but not all of us really got the significance of this. Today, I wish I had. I wish I had done the same thing back then. I would be much farther ahead and better off if I had.
This is why I am emphatic about nurses realizing that there are other options (nontraditional, maybe) available for them. They can look to the future and start working on an on-line business while still working in their traditional nursing job. Why not look into this? You will be that much farther ahead when you retire or burn out from the every day pressures of the hospital or other facility that is traditional for nurses. It sure makes sense to me after having lived it.
