Hi, everyone! My name is Liz and I'm new here
I've been stalking the site for several months to try and get information every time I have a question and usually that works, but I figured it would be even better if I just joined and got involved.
I was hoping that maybe a 2nd year student, or even a 1st year student, could help me. I'm trying to get a bit ahead of the game and know what to expect. I'm incredibly nervous about clinicals. I mean, I have one class all morning and a little into the afternoon, but then it's straight to clinicals. I would love to know what to expect out of clinicals. Do we get thrown into the lions den and have to teach ourselves or do we usually get some parts of clinicals taught in class and then use those skills after? I don't know why I'm so worried that we're going to be released into the unknown with no help, especially when I know that won't happen. But my mind tends to run off without me sometimes and all of a sudden I'll be fretting about something just like this.
So if any of you fellow RN's or nursing students, etc, want to help a girl out and help me know what to expect on my first day that would be great! I would greatly appreciate it.
