I am in an accelerated BSN program and currently in my second level of the program.
Here is the issue: starting my second clinical rotation and now I will be on the PCU floor with a very tough clinical instructor. I was babied the first semester, my first clinical instructor was very nice and patient. This instructor is very strict, we do not get a patient we are assigned to a nurse and follow her with her 4 patients. We then get to pick one patient in which we give our instructor report about, including meds. She is VERY strict with Meds and only gives us 15 min to look up the information about the patient.
I'm worried I won't know an answer to her questions about the pt/meds, I am also very intimidated by her. Anyone have any advice as to how to answer her if I am not sure of an answer. Anyone have experience on a PCU floor, what will I see, what drugs will i expect to see, I need all the preparation I can get. Hoping someone can help!
