Keeping skills sharp during summer break

  1. Question for everyone. First semester is winding down, our last day in clinical is May 21 then we are off until August 27th.

    My question is - barring having your own lab with mannequins, syringes, etc, etc, how do you keep from losing your skills when you have a long break? I welcome any and all suggestions - Thanks!!!

    That's why I'm doing an 8 week externship this summer. Improve and keep the skills sharp.

    I am doing a 10 week internship at a hospital. But obviously that isn't an option for everyone. I have to say if I wasn't doing this intern I can't say I'd be doing a lot of studying or practicing! I know some people are working on drug cards, going over need areas, etc. But I think we will quickly get back into the swing of things. Our school has a lab practice session the first week back where we test each other on our skills.
