Hi, I'm a 2nd year student nurse and start a two month long placement on ITU (Liver) in a couple of weeks. Found your tumblr by typing "student nurse what to expect ITU" into google. Apart from blood gas values and ABC, is there anything else I should be expected to know and what I might be asked to do? Thanks — Asked by Anonymous

You won’t be expected to know how to analyse ABGs, it’ll be handy if you have an understanding of them though. 

& yes, having a systematic way of assessing your patient is a good skill to have also, so ABC is good to have under your hat. 

Don’t forget basic things like personal care, mobilisation and pressure sore prevention.

You’re there to learn, so don’t be too worried.

I’ve said it before, I’ll say it again: Equating all Muslims with the Taliban or Al-Quaeda is like equating all Christians with the Westboro Baptist Church or those who bomb abortion clinics.

The phrase “words to live by” gets thrown around often these days, but these are absolutely words to live by.

Saying “You’re so smart, you should be a doctor!”

…is not a compliment to a nurse. 

I’ve said it thousands of times: Nurses need doctors and doctors need nurses.   Its a symbiotic relationship, that should compliment each other.

The main thing is the patient. Both have the same goal. 
Both professionals work hard for the same outcome.
