9. Be prepared mentally for going to school or attending clinicals even if you are sick or not feeling well.
Just a comment-- you shouldn't be participating in clinicals when you are sick, not with patients whose immune systems already are compromised.
At any rate, you should be calling your clinical instructor with your sx and let her/him decide if you should be there.
good luck with that one. Unfortunately YOU dont get to decide if you are too sick. Your program decides. In mine, you can miss ONE clinical, the second one, you are kicked from the program
You learn to eat healthy, wash your hands, and take care of yourself the best you can. And yes, take a final with a fever of 102.7,
and wear a mask to clinicals to protect your pts.
