I am a nursing student in her final semester. At my school, we are allowed to make suggestions as to where we would like to go. I came up with a few options that I thought would be interesting. I was placed in the PACU. I am super excited, because the area is so new to me.
All that being said, I need some help. As part of my clinically required paperwork, I need to come up with some objectives. These are tasks I would like to accomplish before the end of my rotation...and yes, it is part of my grade.
What I would like help with is this: Obviously I am not asking for you to do my homework and none of you know what I areas I need to work on, but I need some good ideas for objectives. If I was precepting on a med surg unit I would pick as something like, "complete 5 successful IV starts under the supervision of my precepting RN."
What are some skills that are specific to the unit, that a new nurse should want to practice?
Thanks in advance,
