Hmmmm.... what was so hard.....
The INCREDIBLE amount of disorganization and lack of communication we had going on first semester.
The fact that depending on which book you read or which instructor you talk to, you get a different version of the "correct" way to do something.
Preparing for clinical the night before.....filling out med sheets on clients taking 20 meds; looking up and understanding every deatail about their illnesses, both past and present; reading up on and preparing for any proceedures you may be either expected to perform or observe ...then coming in the next morning and it never fails...the instructor asks you a question you didn't look up!
(and all this when you can hardly understand 5 words of the chart because you don't know what the hell you are doing yet
Getting used to taking practical exams, and adjusting to the added stress of the "do it 100% right or fail" situation.
other than that, it was GREAT! :chuckle
Oh, and what did I learn...Too much to even put into words!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! You start to undergo an amazing transformation....before you know it..You've crossed over and stop to think if you need a hat in the toilet before you pee!!!
