This is my last semester of nursing school for my BSN, and I just found out that my transition clinical will be in the PACU, working one-on-one with a nurse mentor. (It's a very large, teaching, university hospital)
I have over a year experience working med/surg on a mostly post-surgical oncology floor (GYN, URO, NEURO, Hospice floor) as a "Student Nurse" aka Nursing Assistant. I've learned SO much at my job and I'm very thankful to have it
That being said, I know nothing about PACU nursing.
Any advice on what I should expect, how to not be a burden to the nurse I'll be working with, and best - how to learn and be successful in this clinical would be wonderful!
Thanks to all in advance!
