Hi all. I was wondering what everyone is required to do to prepare for clinicals. At my school we are required to do research the night before clinical. We have to research the pt. diagnosis, the A&P which the diagnosis is related to, signs and symptoms, treatments and labs. Then we have to come up with 2 nursing diagnosis, expected outcomes and nursing interventions. Then the day of clinical we have to present our research and come up with 2 more interventions. Then that night we have to revise everything we did to be more specific to our actual pt. Does anyone else have to do this? Just curious what you guys are required to do.

I did none of that. I didn't know anything about my patient until I hit the floor in the morning. We did drug cards and had to come up with learning goals.We weren't allowed to go to the clinical site except for aour clinical days.
