    A vital part of being a nurse, is learning how to utilize team work to its fullest. It's important that nurses of all classes unite as a team so that we can all build ourselves to be stronger. Throughout your nursing career you are going to learn new techniques and information on a daily basis. So when you do...

    To make your learning successful and rewarding, I encourage you all to volunteer at a local hospital or healthcare facility. I volunteer at Credit Valley Hospital. First I was in Oncology Department and now I work in Pediatrics. I can't even begin to tell you the experiences I have had.........It has made me look at nursing in a whole new way!

    Nursing Tip

    Hey Guys,

    I just wanted to share this tip because I know a lot of people had a hard time with this when they first began clinical. If you are someone with a weak stomach or that is "bothered" by strong smells, buy a small jar of vicks vapour rub and swab a small amount in your nose. It will help to dilute any smells until you get use to it.

    In addition to Erin's tip, sometimes when my stomach was getting used to all the new and fantastic odours, I'd pop a mint in my mouth to help settle myself!

    Hope this helps!

    Cheers!
