Quick Poll Results
66% of you think that Care Plans are “pointless” or that they take you waaaay too long to write! Only 34% of Your Nursing Tutor students see how Care Plans are helpful in understanding what’s going on with the patient. This is why I have a lesson in the P.A.S.S. Program called “How to Write a Quick and Dirty Care Plan.” Care Plans can be a great learning tool for teaching you how to THINK LIKE A NURSE. But it’s important not to spend too much time on them either because you have plenty of other things to do in nursing school! Now for this week’s Quick Poll:
Be honest…have you ever wished you had kids just so you could practice your clinical skills more at home?
- Yes, after all kids would be an easy way to practice listening to lung sounds…
- I already have kids…and I have practiced nursing skills on them!
- Isn’t that against child labor laws or something?

I’m happy to announce that Lydia Joy finally entered the world on April 7th at 6:35am. She was one-week late, but worth the wait. We’re both doing well, and having fun getting to know each other.
As things around the house are settling down again, I’m starting to look ahead with Your Nursing Tutor and make plans for the summer. I’ll be picking a start date for the next P.A.S.S. Program sometime this week, so watch your email for a special announcement about that. I have gotten such great feedback from the current students enrolled in the P.A.S.S. Program that I can’t wait to share it again with the rest of you. Stay tuned!
And send me an email sometime, I love hearing from everyone. Whether it’s a question, a comment, or you just want to tell me what your nursing school experience has been like, I’d love to hear from you! You can always reach me anytime at Nicole@YouRNursingTutor.com .
Well, that’s all for this week, see you around the website!
