last semester of school, 1st day of clinicals, hadn't placed a Foley the entire program.....big 350 lb dude, combative, VA patient....I assisted the instructor, put it in, and it was just like tappin a keg....started spraying as I tried to get it farther in....happened 2 years ago, and I've never had it happen again. heh...when I think about all the foleys I've placed.

Specializes in Psych.

OR/Peds, first 4.5 weeks, Resp second 4.5 weeks, Psych last 4.5 weeks

The only thing interesting is that since i work Psych and my instructors know it, usually give me the psych patients on the floor.

Specializes in LTC/ Med Surg.

In Psych rotation for the 1st 8 wks of the program then on to med surg next 8 wks. I have had some pretty interesting patients in this rotation so far, I came into psych not really liking it from previous LPN experience but now i really like it alot. My instructor is awesome she has helped us so much to learn meds and she makes us feel very comfortable with difficult patients.

I hated OB! Good luck! I'm in nursing 3, so doing medsurg right now. I'm loving it so far! So much more of a variety of patients. I've only had 2 clinical days so far, so nothing too interesting.
