Explore your career options - Admitting Nurse (Access)

Can you imagine trying to organize the information of hundreds of patients in a busy emergency room? This is the job of an admitting nurse, who must enter, edit, and format data; add and delete records; and so on. This information is used by all departments of the hospital, from the doctors, to the pharmacy, and to the billing department. Without a proper understanding of database software, a hospital cannot run efficiently. The average salary of an admitting nurse is in the $40,000 to $50,000 range. The demand for nurses is expected to remain high (O'Leary, AC1.83). Please reply to this post with a 5 sentence summary of how you plan to use Microsoft Acces in your career field.

Imagining how I would handle the job as an admitting RN in an emergency room using Microsoft Access, would be an interesting challenge I would be willing to take on. I for one have excellent organization skills and would be delighted with a job as an admitting RN in an emergency room.

  2. Hello, I’m Madeline Figueroa. My goal is to become an RN and if I were to obtain a job as an admitting nurse at an emergency hospital, I have what it takes to keep everything under control and organize. First of all the technology is so advanced and it available to help us keep everything more organize. The Microsoft Access program it’s a very useful tool for entering patient demographics and patient medical history. I look forward to learning more on this program to improve the skills that one day I will be using in the medical world. Understanding the database is my priority.

  4. As a nurse I plan on using Microsoft Access in my career field because many patients come in and out of an emergency room setting on a daily basis. Due to the fact that so many people are admitted or seen in one day, I, as a nurse must make it easier for not only myself but also for the rest of the hospital along with pharmacies and the billing departments to keep track of everyone that was seen and also have their information on file. With Microsoft Access, it will make the lives of everyone in this working field along with mine much easier due to its accessible information on the patients that I would enter. Access allows me to put in the patients’ date of birth, address, first and last name, sex along with any other information that might be needed in order for each department to be able to know the patient in need and help them to the greatest of ability. As a nurse Microsoft Access is definitely a plus in order to making me a more organized employee.

  5. Microsoft Access is very beneficial and helps organization and the flow of traffic in the hospital. It is able to keep records on patients admitted into the hospital and/or employee records. As a nurse, learning the program would be very beneficial to me as I could fulfill more than one role. Which could lead to more job opportunities. As an admitting nurse there would be more pay and I would use the program to properly document the patients admitted and discharged.

  8. As an admitting nurse working in the emergency room, many of patients enter daily and in order to stay organized, Microsoft access will help me out a lot. I will be able to keep count on all the patients that are being admitted, and those that are being discharged. I can also keep important information there like for instance their date of birth, first and last name, address, and a contact number to a close relative. Microsoft Access will not only help me out extremely but it would also help out my co-workers who for instance may need to look up information about my patient. They could easily just open up Microsoft Access and all the information that they need will be right there. Microsoft Access is a great way of keeping everything organized and I would recommend that any one who has problems with keeping everything organized to use Microsoft Access.

  9. As a nurse in the medical field a lot of information, and data is given to you on a daily bases. I plan to use Microsoft Access in my career field by, using it to enter all of my patients’ information that is given to me from the doctors. It is also a way to keeps organized in genera to not get lost in your own mess. Furthermore, to remind myself about certain times needed to check on a patient and give out medications. Continuing, I would use it to write down comments stated by the patients dealing with their pain level, how they feel about certain medications, and any questions they have for the doctor.
