6. Trust your instinct Nurses have an uncanny way of using their gut to determine if/when something is not quite right with their patients. This, in my view, is what makes a nurse a bit special. Nurses are able to achieve this because they are the ones who spend the most amount of time with the patient and offer hands-on care, so, they can tell when a characteristic is out of the ordinary, even without medical evidence at first. So if youre a nurse like me and you get that feeling in the pit of your stomach, that something isnt quite right, then it probably isnt.
Both Nurses and Detectives must possess good observational and critical thinking skills to gather evidence, sort through facts and examine details to come to conclusions. Detectives solve crimes to get criminals off the streets. Nurses solve problems to prevent illness and to assist people recover from illness. So if you are a LPN or RN, feel free to start calling yourself a Nurse Detective.
Nursing Interventions for Imbalanced Nutrition (Excessive): The Nurse shall explain and have patient verbalize the relationship of diabetes and diet, and the patient shall give a return explanation is his / her own words.

Did anyone ever tell you that you are persistent? Instead of making your hackles rise, treat this as a compliment. The reason is that as nursing professional you are expected to be persevering and persistent. The nursing profession has never been for the weak of heart. One has to have an iron will in order to survive and succeed nursing.
Although the point has not frequently been made or generally canvassed, the role of the nursing profession in the success and effectiveness of the medical profession is not only fundamental but in fact indispensable. And that is to say that the credit and tribute in the success of the medicine profession must be shared between medicine practitioners and nurses first and foremost.
In recent times we have witnessed quite a few reports of malpractices by doctors and nurses alike. Shocking as it may be negligence and malpractices are rising at an alarming rate. Being medical professionals and having have taken the oath of Hippocrates, it is extremely shameful and dangerous for licensed professionals to act this way.
