I am getting ready to start my 3rd semester of clinical in a week, and will be graduating this spring(2007) from an ADN program, hopefully!!! I have recently got a job at a hospital as a Student Nurse II / Advanced CNA. I will be on the PCU floor (Progressive Care Unit) mainly, but may float from time to time. I was wondering if anyone who has experiance in being a CNA or Student Nurse has any advice. I will be working 2 12 hour shifts a week ( weekend, more than likely). I will, also, be going to school about 5 days a week ( 2 days are 8hr clinical in hospitals). I need advice on managing time and anything else. I am excited but scared!! I have done plenty of clinical rotations for school but I have never had a job in this field
. So, I won't have my instructor there to help me or my peers to assist me. As I said, advice will be very appreciated!!!!
