Don't incriminate yourself here, but just wondering has anyone ever purposely missed a clinical day for something other than a sickness? I know I try hard to got because it's much more trouble than its worth to miss clinicals, unless it's something completely out of my control, like being sick or my car not starting, and that has only been once or twice in 3 years of nursing school. I tend to feel guilty, so I will just go. However, I have a dilemma because next year we have clinicals scheduled on a Tuesday and there is an event I've been waiting for a long time also on that night; it's a 12 hr clinical. This might possibly be the first day of clinical....double whammy! Ugh, I feel guilty already and nothing has even happened yet.
