Managing a Clinical Situation

You will have been involved in managing clinical situations since your first days on the ward, but as you progress through training and prepare to take on the responsibilities of a registered nurse it is increasingly important that you recognise the appropriate actions to be taken and that you are aware of where to seek advice and information pertaining to particular situations. Managing situations appropriately involves being able to assess the situation and needs of the patient and being able to act accordingly.
