Hello I'm currently in nursing school
in Denver and I'am trying to figure out the best possible chose for me on where to do my practicum. I have always been interested in ER/Trauma, and i also want to do my practicum somewhere I can learn as much as possible. Normally the nursing school will place you somewhere for your practicum but i know quite a few people who where placed in nursing homes or elementary schools
and those two things are the last places i would like to be placed only because that is nothing close to what i want to do and I have done a few rotations already at nursing homes and its not my cup of tea. I have also been told that most places will not hire a new grad in the ER. Im wondering if i can get my foot in the door somewhere in an ER if that would give me a better chance and if I should be careful at choosing which ER to do my practicum at. Im currently looking into Avistas ER but would love some insight on other peoples practicum and there placement. Any insight or suggestions would be greatly appreciated!!!!!
