The Way to Make Your Nursing Life Better
Working in a hospital as a nurse means you have to be ready to work any days at any time, even when it is 3 AM. It sounds difficult but that is the responsibility that you have to do because you have chosen it. If you think a nurse does not have a lot of free time, then you need to make the nurse schedule template for yourself. It is a very easy and simple template to be made because basically it will just contain the dates and the days, the name of the department you need to be on duty on—NICU (Neonatal Intensive Care Unit), ICU (Intensive Care Unit), PICU (Paediatric Intensive Care Unit), HCU (High Care Unit), IW (Intermediate Ward), and ICCU (Intensive Coronary Care Unit), the shift, and the total hours of each shift that you get. So basically those are the information that you need to write if you want to make the nurse schedule template. You can directly make it once you have gotten the schedules from the hospital where you work in. Make it as simple and clear as possible because you will need to take a look at it very often to make sure you do not come in the wrong shift.
Once you have made this nurse schedule template you will be able to make and plan something else that you need to do in your lives since everyone has other things to do beside doing their jobs. You better make the nurse schedule template every month or once you have gotten it from the hospital where you work in. Another advantage that you will get by making this template are, you will be more ready and fresh to do the shifts that you get. Sometimes a nurse does not have the good sleeping cycle, but making the nurse schedule template will make you easier to also make a plan and the proper time for sleeping. If you have done make it, you can also set a reminder on your phone to check it, let us say that you will get the shift on the 5th of October, so it means you have to set a reminder on your phone to check the nurse schedule template on the 4th of October. It is the way to make sure that you do not forget about it and also to remind you for several times.
