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.
