Does anyone have advice of anything that a nursing student could do that would benefit the unit/floor during down times? The last couple of clinical rotations we have had, the units have only had a few patients and once vitals are taken and meds given, there isn't a whole lot to do. We answer all the call lights and do whatever our patients need/want, but is there something additional we could be doing? I feel bad because a group of 2-3 of us inevitably will be standing around, essentially waiting for a light to go off. I'm not above doing any tasks and just wish I knew how to be of more use. I've tried asking some nurses and my instructors but I've never really gotten any advice other then to answer the call lights. Any suggestions?
