Today I have Hospital Orientation, Oh I am Nervous.:uhoh21: I will be meeting my clinical instructor for the first time today. Tommorow will be my first clinical day so I am supposing that today I will have preclinical after orientation.
My question to all of you seasoned students and nurses is, What the heck do we do in pre-clinical? What should I bring with me to be prepared? Is their a place for me to store my purse and perhaps my books and blank care plan sheet?
My school has been more than vague about what is expected of us during pre-Clinical. Is this because our clinical instructor is in charge of this? I am just feeling real nervous. I want to be as prepared as possiby, so please, at least share with me your FIRST Pre-Clinical and what you did?
What did you look for in the chart? We were told to not do a complete assessment on our patient and to find as much information as we could in the patients chart. They don't want us to burden the patient with repetitively having to answer the same questions. Good for them- Maybe not so good for me!
I have never even seen a chart so I feel completely in the dark about what and where to look for the information I need.....
Thank you in advance for all of the help you guys have been!!!!
Did I mention how excited I am!!!!!!!
