Is there light at the end of the tunnel

  1. Hi, there, i am hoping to get some type of reassurance here or great advice. Okay, my story is that I have one subject to go to complete my degree. I have now finished my Clinical Practicums for the degree and need to just complete the one theory subject next year and wella I am RN.

    Anyways, since I have no further clinical placements. Graduate mid year next year. I cant remember lots of things I have been taught in nursing school. Is there light at the end of the tunnel, that I can regain my insight to nursing, once I get into the hospital system and work?

    look forward to your reply :wink2:

    It's hard to remember everything you learn in nursing school, it's just too much. Your coworkers, the internet, and a good reference book are going to be your best resources. That, and as we say in the Southern US, "the good sense the Lord gave you".

    GOod luck!

    This is why you hang on to all your notes and textbooks. Where ever you finally end up working, you will want to be hitting your notes and books to help cement in your noodle what you learned in school. Every time you review the information and apply it to a patient you are caring for, it takes a stronger hold. In fact, what ever kind of nursing unit you end up working on, you will find the patients will have similar diagnoses and problems and after awhile it can get a bit boring because you start to feel like you've learned everything to know about those particular diseases. But, cheer up! You can move on to work on another specialty unit and start hitting the books again to review and learn about other diseases you've forgotten about!
