When you were a student, can you leave the RN that you worked with as a refrence?

  1. When I was at clinicals, I often worked with the RN..The situation was that, the RN had the same patient I had but I took care of that patient..Plus if I had questions, I would go to her..I was wondering, is that a good "professional refrence.."I belive that she was there also looking at my work plus played a supervising role on what to do..And she was licensed and I was not..

    All you can do is ask her if you can use her as a refrence. If she says you can then use her.

    I don't see why not. Though did you have this nurse only once during clinical or throughout the entire semester? It would be kind of hard for her to have for a reference if you only had her once during the clinical rotation. But overall I guess I don't see anything wrong with that. Go for it!
