I am a nursing student that has one more year to go. During this summer a lot of other students are working as nursing interns. I signed up for one but recently found out that they had to cancel the program at the hospital b/c of money problems. Now it is too late for me to get in on another one. I have called the hospitals in the area and they are now full.
But one hospital wants me to come in as an aid to work. Is this a good tool for learning to become an RN? They have been very persistent with me and I am a little hesitent b/c a lot of other people have said that this will not help me for my senior year. One of my clincial instructors said that she thought just studying and reading at home would be great for starting my senior year.
I am a mom of 4 and need to spend my time wisely this summer. I have 2 classes also to take this summer. I am very concerned that I will be behind the other students when clinicals start in the Fall.
I am still not sure where to go with this. From any of your experiences what do you think is best for me to do this summer in regards to keeping up with the others??
btw, I have med surg, geri, peds, ob clinicals done so far.
