This is my last semester of nursing school and on top of clinicals we pick area to preceptor. I requested CICU but all that was available was neuro. I will be doing 150 hours this semester with a preceptor.
At first I was scared to death but now, after reading this message board, I am terrified!
I would appreciate any encouragement and tips for a student who will be light years out of his league.
What skills sets should I brush up on the most before going to the neuro ICU?
The hospital I will be at is UAB. It is a large teaching hospital with a level one trauma ER. I know I will see everything imaginable. It will be a great experience.
How can I prepare myself for the experience?
