i'm starting my first clinical rotation in the fall...not sure what to expect. but what really has me worried is the spring rotation in ob/maternity nursing because it will be done at the hospital where i work as a unit coordinator on the ob/maternity floor.
i will be shadowing the nurses i work with now, some of whom are tough as nails, and give me a hard enough time now, as a uc...i can't imagine them accepting me as a nursing student. as it is, when the students come through during the school year, i see and hear the grunts and groans and rolling eyes of the nurses to whom the students are assigned.
i am really dreading this, and i have been so excited about the ob/maternity rotation, i don't want this to ruin that experience.
most, if not all of the nurses i work with know i am going to nursing school, but they look at me as just the "secretary", and i don't want that to affect the clinical experience.
has anyone had this type of problem?? any ideas how to handle it??
