Anyone Teaching Undergrad Clinicals?

  1. Hi everyone,

    I am an NP in an ICU and just started teaching undergrad students in their second clinical semester. We do 12hr shifts and it's so hard to keep these students busy. Anyone have any ideas and/or sample schedules of a students day? I feel like I'm cheating them out of skills, but unfortunately there's only so much you can do on a med-surg unit. Any info would be great!

    I taught second semester accelerated program and only 8 hours. I rotated students to work with the CNA's, they rotated through different clinicals such as GI, cath lab, pain, etc. I had them answer lights to help them interact with patients. This is often the area they struggle with most. They needed to be busy because I did not tolerate standing in a huddle.

    Thanks! Those are great ideas. I'm not sure how easy it will be to get them into other depts but answering the call bells is genius! God know no one else on this unit does. Lol.
