I am going to be starting my second semester of my ADN program and will be doing my first clinical rotation. I will be in my psych rotation in an alzheimer's unit. I was wondering if any other more advanced nursing students or active nurses would have advice for me, such as top 3 things you wished someone told you to do or to know before you started your first clinical rotation. Anything else you would want to throw in is appreciated too! Is there an etiquette I should try to follow other than being respectful to the employed nurses I'll be working with?
I did well grade wise last semester, but it all seems a blur. Are there certain topics or subjects I should make sure I know like the back of my hand? (aside from what my professor seems to stress?) Also does anyone have tips on how to network with the nurses onsite for future job opportunities after I graduate?
