Nursing Brain 3.1.1

I just have too much fun with this brain design thing.

Yes I’m a computer nerd. If you haven’t figured that out by now, you haven’t been paying attention. 😉

The newest version is basically the same as my last brain, but I changed the look of the backside. Lab values now take up the top half and CBC/Chem7 results can now be noted in shorthand (don’t worry, I indicated what goes where for people like me who haven’t figured it out yet). This is an oncology brain, so the lab section includes values such as ANC (absolute neutrophil count). If you download it in Word format, you can substitute in the labs that your unit frequently uses.

SBAR is now on the bottom half, and breaks down the assessment portion by body system – it’s been much easier to give report since I changed this part.

And then there’s an added bonus. My preceptor asked me to redesign the brain she uses, so I thought I’d post that too (as usual, in Word and PDF formats), to give you yet another option. This is still a work in progress, so keep an eye out for updated versions in the future.

By the way, if you’ve downloaded a brain from this blog and made some improvements of your own, I’d love to see what you came up with! And I’m happy to post your changes or your own brains if you’d like to share them with other readers. This blog is all about helping each other along the journey!

Just shoot me an e-mail (nurseteeny@gmail.com) with your brain attached, and a little narrative about it if you’d like to “guest post”.

But hold on to your actual brain, you’re gonna need it for nursing school. Hardy har. 😉
