First level, we had clinicals Mon-Tues, and class Wed-Fri...our clinicals were in a LTCF. Basically, it was strictly "basic care", plenty of bed baths, changing incontinent residents, doing assessments.
Second Level, clinicals from Mon-Wed, class Thurs-Fri...these clinicals are on a med/surg unit. Now, we're doing more LPN duties but still doing basic care as well for the 1-2 pts we're assigned. However, lots of times, your pt is discharged after the first day...which means you have to pick more.
Third level, we're back to a LTCF...doing LPN duties, as opposed to the CNA duties we were doing on First Level.
In all instances, you have to do thorough research on the resident/pts diagnosis, surgical hx, come up with care plans
, and research their meds.
