Best places to learn for a new student?

  1. Does anyone have suggestions on where in a hospital will give a new student the best opportunity to learn in their first year. If the options were cardio/pulmonary, medical, med/surg, ICU, OR what would you pick? Any help would be great.

  2. Poll: Where in the hospital do you get the most experience as a new nurse?

    You'll get a lot of experience at any of these places, if you have the option of all, I would look into where your interests lie and what your long term goals are and go from there

    When I was a student, we could work at our training hospital as students but was not expected to do anything beyond what we had been taught to that point. I was a float. I worked every unit and that was the best learning experience ever!

    They are all places to learn. Remember the experience is what YOU make of it.Any floor can be a valuable experience.
