I'm graduating in May and will be working in the ER, if all goes accordingly. What I want to know is: I'm doing my last semester clinical practicum at a hospital that lets us do alot. It's the "county hospital," you might say. It's also the hospital where I plan on working. My fellow students think I'm crazy for working at the "indigent" hospital.
Needless to say, I've gotten to do more in two weeks than they'll probably get to do all semester. Anyway, back to what I wanted to know. What should I be focusing on this last semester that will help in my new grad ED experience. I know that, regardless, I'll be entering the complete unknown, but that's what I like. But surely there are things that I could really focus on now that may help later. Sorry if this has been asked, I looked through the forum, but "fortunately" got caught up in the "Rules for ER nurses" thread for several days. :roll
