I'm on a PCU floor and my clinical instructor wants us to have our binders so organized, and have all cardiac meds on a chart with nursing assessments. Pretty much everything. I was just wondering if anyone has good ideas on how to organize a clinical binder and or if anyone has a cardiac med chart that they would like to share! Hope I get some feeback. thanks guys!..My clinical instructor is TOUGH. I've already been told I suck at reporting lol.

I had a simple brown clip board with a cardboard folder clipped to it. A lot of my classmates got a cool clipboard from Walmart that was plastic (easy clean), you could fit paper inside the body, and it had a calculator on top.
All I brought to clinical was a drug book first semester (CI didn't want us using phones). After, than I just used the Micromedex app on my phone.
Does she have a list of cardiac meds you need to have? Otherwise just pick a prototype drug the most popular one from each class of drug (digoxin, ACE, ARB, Beta blocker, each class of diuretics, Statins, CCBs --there's a bunch of different kinds though norvasc, Procardia,verapamil, and Cardizem would be a good start--, Amiodarone for sure, Adenosine, atropine, find out if you need to know pressors (dopamine, epi, norepi, vaso), dobutamine, etc. Then just make spend time on excel making it pretty, and put references on the bottom professors love references.
