Learning Center Experience
Have you ever been in a restaurant where the person waiting on your table seemed to take forever filling your order and bringing your food? The server was rushing to and fro but didn’t seem to get anywhere? It’s not hard to see that wasted motion is dominating the performance of their job. The same is a potential problem with nursing.
The difference for the server, however, is that the food is late or cold or the order is mixed up. For the nurse, the outcome is potentially far more serious. That’s why, for nurses, good time management skills aren’t simply convenient—they are essential.
It’s not a matter of working faster or working harder. A nurse has to work smarter. Nursing is a ballet of motion and actions where random changes in the choreography are expected and seamlessly blended into the performance.
Yes, it’s challenging. But, it’s also a highly rewarding career, both professionally and personally. A nurse can take pride in handling a difficult job with the greatest possible efficiency. Personally, the reward is even greater when a nurse looks into the eyes of a patient who is suffering and sees that actions taken help alleviate a person’s pain and discomfort.

If you develop these habits, you’ll improve your time management skills while becoming a more efficient and effective nurse. Others will appreciate your ability to meet the substantial and fluid demands of nursing with calm professionalism, less stress, and a greater sense of self worth.
