Seem like you must be a student at MSMC right? and you were refering to clinical care partner position at UCLA? I am currently an ADN student at Los Angeles County College of Nursing and working as a care partner in the ICU two shifts per week (24 hours). I know that's pretty crazy considering I"m taking classes full load. I met several students from MSMC that are also working as a care partner but they were from the traditional BSN program. I can't imagine taking 18 semester credits and working at the same time. It could be done but it's hard.
I feel that working at UCLA helps me decide the type of specialty and the unit I want to apply once I graduated. As far as skills you don't get to do very much just basic ADL, EKG, vitals, and helps out the RNs. In my unit, I got to do a bit more since most of the nurses there know that I'm in the third semester of nursing school
and will be done at the end of this year. I'm allow to do dressing changes, finger sticks, some NG, Foley and watch procedures. I personally feel that it definitly helps in dealing with patients, nurses and doctors to work as a care partner while going to school.
Any questions let me know will be glad to help
