Failed clinical

  1. Any advice you guys can give me based on this title. However my parents are in New York and it's so hard to finding nursing home jobs or jobs over there.
    Tip: anyone said it's hard to failclinical should not say that because it is just as easy to fail

    There's not much detail here ...but I will say that I once failed a clinical due to illness and absences. I dealt with it by retaking the cinical and passing it. So, my advice is don't get sick? I'm not sure what you struggled with.

    Actually it was because of communication issues and me being the first time at a hospital. My instructor felt I needed more time. Some people said clinical is so hard to fail, well they were wrong

    tips for students going into clinical. It's not going to be textbook book by book base. Don't believe what other says how clinical is hard to fail. You might fail it happened to me. Know your meds that you give to the patients. Don't be anxious! That was my big mistake. You are basically a helper nurse. I just don't like it how also if you fail more than once the rationale for that is they don't pass nclex. I just find it odd because in the exams are nclex questions so... and nclex is a fictional world compared to clincial. Like nclex says we give meds one by one whereas in clincial it's all at once. So biased and hypocritical with the rational of not repeating more than once esp those who ace the classroom exams but don't ace clinicals.

    Ok, based on the wording in your OP, I would agree that you need to work on your communication skills.

    Your title said "Failed clinical" and then your OP started talking about where your parents live and the availability of nursing home jobs. What does one have to do with the other?

    The plan to remediate yourself is not going to be a generic answer- you need to take the feedback that you were given by your clinical instructor, reflect on it, and make a plan to overcome that. In your case, it is communication issues. Based on your OP, it is clear there are indeed communication issues. You start out with a title of failed clinical but your post is about your parents' hometown and jobs. It's missing the meat of the communication, about why you failed clinical (which wasn't revealed until a later post after it was drawn out of you).

    A good chuck of my classmates failed clinical. If anything I think its easier to fail clinical because its based off the opinion of the instructor vs lecture where its based off test scores.

    So it sounds like it was suggested to you to get a job as a CNA to get more experience before retaking the semester? Personally I would try to get a job in a hospital vs nursing home. This will get you more exposure to how the hospital runs and different illnesses. I don't really have any suggestions as far as finding work in an area that doesn't have a lot of opening, besides moving to an area that does but I don't know how possible that is for you.
