Today, I had clinical in the ER. I have completely been looking forward to this rotation. What a disappointment... My instructor took me to the unit and one of the nurses showed me around. After that, I pretty much ceased to exist. The nurse I was with totally and completely ignored me. It was like I wasn't even there. She didn't even LOOK at me! The tech and one of the other nurses said a few words to me but for the most part, nothing. Of course, when my instructor showed up to check on me, suddenly everyone was super friendly and had IV's for me to start and so on. I am just really irritated and disappointed that my day in the emergency room wasn't a better learning experience.
