Hi I start school on aug 29. I am so anxious . Have been an lpn for 17 years and consider myself good. My experience has been ltc. No hospital experience. I am worried about fitting in with the second year students. I really want to. I am also worried cause to be honest I dont know a heck of a lot about ivs. They make me nervous but I suppose its cause we dont deal with them to often. I am just starting to feel comfortable with trach patients. Only have had to take care of a couple.
My first day of school will be orientation to clinical site then on second day I will be doing a sim lab. I have no idea what is expected. I dont want to make a fool out of myself in the sim lab. I am the only one in my clinical group on that day that gets to go to the sim lab. other people will be joining but 1 from each clinical group. I know no one and its frustrating. it also sounds like we get our patients assigned the day of clinical so no prep time the night before. I am really praying that I'll make it through. I have worked so hard for this.
any study tips or advice would be appreciated. thanks
