I'm halfway through my ADN nursing program, and though I receive high grades, I feel as if I should be 'further along' -- I'm assuming this is normal. Anyway, I was talking with an ICU nurse the other day and he was telling me that going in great depth with his nursing care plans
was how he felt he was able to excel and feel comfortable once graduation day came (so comfortable that he was applied and was accepted onto a ICU training program).
So my question is, what is a good way to practice nursing care plans
without having a real patient like in clinical. I ask because I have only 1 semester of adult care left, and (unfortunately) a long summer break before that.
I'm not use to posting on message boards so I hope my question/explanation of concern and such has been clear and I'm appreciative of any ideas. Thanks,
