Hi Guys! I just finished my first semester (woohoo:roll) & am thinking about getting a position as a Care partner (CNA, patient care tech) at one of the local hospitals. I am a bit hesitant though I heard next semester is nothing compared to first semester. I will be starting OB, Psych, & peds & heard its pretty hard to adjust since we were spoon fed first semester. However, everyone recommends working as a CP & our hospitals are very accomodating with student nurses. I would work flexi & make my own schedule w/a minimum requirement of 16hrs/mth. My school schedule is M/Th 8-4 T/Wed 6:45-1:30 clinical give or take. Fridays off study day.
My question is which unit do you guys recommend while in school? ICU, Med/Surg, or Cardiac stepdown
Thanks for any input!
