Quote from dream8
Just a quick question. Those that have gone through clinical, in your experience have you learned more in day clinical vs. night clinical. I was told by a couple of students that they prefer to do day clinical because at night its much slower and a lot of the patients are sleep. Is the amount of learning different, do you get better experience during the day. Any comments????
i'm a nightshift nurse now that i graduated. we work our buns off.
but whenever i was in school, i did day clinicals. it was true that our friends that came in from 1-9 did little except pass meds. by that time dressing changes, meds, and baths had been given. they had already came and went for tests and procedures for the day (most of the time).
they even told us that they just sat around and ate and did their school paperwork during their clinical,
at least, that was on the floor. in the units, OB and surgury rotations, it was a little different.
