..and btw don't buy into the fact that University is best. It all depends on your INSTRUCTOR! My Basics instructor was amazing. I was at Slidell and got more experience doing things than my friends who were at University. But I had an awesome instructor who made sure to grab us every time a possible learning experience popped up. So in Basics I had already d/c'd a Foley, emptied a Jackson Pratt wound vac, given IM and SQ injections (a LOT), d/c'd an IV, sat in on a PICC insertion and assisted, switched out a Foley bag, helped program pumps, helped mix meds/insulins...I could go on and on. I was in NAC 1 with someone who had done her clinicals at University in Basics and STILL had never d/c'd a Foley or given an IM injection!! So you really need to look at what people have to say about the instructor and not the clinical site. For NAC 1 I was at an LTAC center and saw 10 X more than I ever thought I would. But, once again, my instructor was amazing!!
