How to Write a Narrative Nursing Note?

Answer

A narrative nursing note is a note that nurses write when they are writing the story of something that happened to a patient once they got into their care. It can also be the story of a nurse's career as well. If the first is the case, make sure that you take accurate notes while the event is happening. After the event has happened make an outline of everything that occured and then sit down and put all of those notes together into the body of the note.
