    BONUS! Accepting Feedback in Nursing School: Episode 254

    BONUS! Accepting Feedback in Nursing School: Episode 254

    If there’s one thing that’s consistent throughout all of nursing school it’s the constant feedback - on exams, in clinical, in skills lab, on assignments and in simulation lab. And yes, sometimes that feedback isn’t what we were hoping to hear and it can be really demoralizing if you let it.



    But with the right mindset, you can accept even the harshest feedback without it blowing your confidence! In this episode I’m sharing some mindset tips and a new way to view feedback so that it helps you grow (even when it’s not what you want to hear).



    I’m also sharing tips from ATI, the sponsor of our “Say Yes to Success” series which airs for five consecutive weeks. Take a minute to follow the show so you don’t miss a single episode!

    Transfusing Blood with Confidence: Episode 253

    Transfusing Blood with Confidence: Episode 253

    Transfusing blood products is a high-risk procedure that requires careful attention to detail and excellent patient assessment skills. For this reason, any time you administer blood products you will be doing it with another RN to ensure all the safety checks have been conducted. Whether you’re a nurse wanting to boost your confidence in this area, or a student preparing for a blood transfusion check-off, this lesson is a great review of the key things you need to know. You’ll learn:



    * The different types of blood products

    * ABO compatibility

    * The steps for performing a blood transfusion

    * The signs of a transfusion reaction

    * What to do when a reaction occurs

    * How to monitor your patient after the transfusion



    Want to maximize your learning by reading this information, too? Check out the article and references for types of blood products here, and on blood transfusion basics here.

Helpful!!!!

This podcast has been amazing for me. Really helps set me up in school and review topics I have forgotten about.

I love all Nurse Mo’s resources!

I started listening to straight a Nursing podcast when I was enrolled in prerequisites. It was great to have a head-start into the program after completing Straight A Boot Camp! I am now in my third semester and I love listening to a relevant podcast on the way to morning clinicals. It’s always a calming feeling to hear nurse Mo explain a topic and helps me feel more prepared. Thank you nurse Mo for all of your amazing resources. I just bought my second planner and it is definitely a must for any nursing student! I am going to take advantage of the Black Friday sale and enroll in study sesh! Thank you Nurse Mo!

BEST PODCAST HANDS DOWN

Thank you sooooo much, Nurse Mo! I’m a year into my program and your podcast has helped tremendously. Between your boot camp, the podcast, and study sesh I’ve been able to tie everything together. You’re definitely a gift from heaven, and we appreciate you taking time out of your day to educate nursing students. Thank
You!
