We had to go to the hospital for our patient information, diagnosis, all meds, labs,x-ray reports, copy all the information we needed and stop in and talk to the patient for a bit. Then, when we got home, we had to look up all the meds(dosages, side effects,etc.). We had to look up the diagnosis and do a pathophysiology report, usual treatments, surgeries,etc. for that particular disease. We also had to complete a nursing diagnosis sheet, care plans
and they expect us to know all about the meds we are giving (without looking at our med sheets!). I was very lucky last semester, our instructor had our assignments done by 10:30 am and we had a lot of time to complete our paper work. I start 2nd year in Aug. and we will have 2 patients with all meds, etc, on them and we'll have clinicals 2 days instead of one, so that means double paper work. Whew!! Makes me tired thinking of it. I'm on summer break, am taking micro class, though. Good Luck to you. Hope this helped.
