Community PlacementRegister Today!
- by RUNS10 Jul 24, '08I was wondering if someone could give me some advice. I am a 3rd year nursing student. I was given a community placement starting in Sept. at a shelter for abused women and children. I am not woking under an RN and am wondering how to approach this placement. I have to do health promotion in terms of giving two hour long presentations and speak with each client individually. I am to take their health histories and can do assessments. Any tips of making this placement all it can be would be great. Thanks!

Good luck! I'm a relatively new PHN, but I hope it helps!
