Clinicals are starting!! Does anyone have any tips/pointers/sequences or ANY help with physical assessments!? And documenting? I know you can't document RIGHT away with an assessment, because maybe you have other thins you need to do.. So, what do you personally do? Keep it in a little notebook? On a notecard? I need help!! I know y'all have been through it &/or going through it!

Your clinical instructor will tell you every thing that is required of you. You will need a Pocket notebook to take notes, and record your VS and any other info you need. Just keep your notes organized and sequenced, your instructor will tell you what you are to do. Every school and site is different as far as assignments. I know how you feel, I just finished my clinical rotations last week for this semester (I'm in my first semester of LPN program have 2 1/2 weeks left till the end of this semester
) !, believe me after the first day, you will get the swing of things, and know what to expect and a better way of doing things, especially if you have a great instructor who critiques you on what you're doing. Good Luck!
