To cut it short, we had a shortened clinical last week and I was unable to get all the info on my patients for my patient care bundles. I need to go back to the hospital to login to epic and get this info but I’m not sure how to go about it. I don’t want my instructor to know I need to do this. I was thinking to just go to the hospital and ask the nurse manager of the floor if I can just use the computer for this info very quickly. I thought it best to not wear my scrubs (because I can’t help out without and instructor) but i’m Also worried this comes across as unprofessional to the nurse manager and those who work on the unit. Am I overstepping by doing this? Or am i just overthinking? Thoughts?

Definitely do not do this outside of making arrangements through official channels. If you can't or won't do that, you're just SOL this time around. I'm serious; this is not a matter of opinion.

ETA: By official channels, I mean this is a problem for which your school must advise you. Do not approach hospital personnel with special requests to access their records.

Agree with the above — do not log into the hospital's system outside of your clinical time and without specific permission to do so, and not just from the hospital staff. This would be a huge blunder.
