AnLe, ASN, RN 44 Posts Specializes in Medsurg/Tele. Has 5 years experience. Nov 14, 2017 I have a love hate relationship with clinicals. When I started clinicals, we only had 1 patient and would assist the CNA. I focused on improving my patient communication. Paperwork was tedious at the time because we hadn't gone paperless yet. I always tried to pick patients with helpful nurses.
