Dr. Weanus on How Nurses Learn

Dr. Weanus clearly treasures his nursing collaborators. So much so that at an Emergency Department medical staff meeting, he stands up and tells his physician brethren (and they were all male) exactly how much he values their knowledge and practice.

So what do you really think of nurses’ critical reasoning skills in the Emergency Department setting, Dr. Weanus?

“Nurses, of course, can’t understand the theory behind ACLS,” he intoned. “They learn it all by rote.”

My favourite internist.

    Sounds like Dr. Weanus is a penis.

    And I thought things had changed over the years… oh my…how arrogant.

    Interestingly I was told the same thing by a BSN about diploma nurses. “BSN’s understand *why* things happen, diploma nurses just have bedside skills.”
    Really.
