Mine werent the best in the world for sure. Luckily i had LPN experience when i was in RN school so i gave up a lot so others could have it.
But, we have students on my floor now and i try very hard to make sure they get as much procedure experience as i can, including taking things to the instructor and asking her if there is a student that needs this experience and if they have time or would like to do it. That is the only way to a successful med/surg experience.
I have asked the instructor if the student could do the procedure with my oversight, i have students coming to me asking about their documentation. I try to make sure i dont take away from my patients, but only by having people working on the floor that students can feel they can come to without being judged will they succeed.
It must be working because when they come in the day before to get their paperwork they always ask if im going to be there the next day.
I dont have a taste for new nurses, i prefer pizza.
