Organize, organize, organize ! Take the time to find out about your patient then make a list of what has to be done, when to do it, what tests and procedures are scheduled, what time meds are due, and what lab tests have been ordered (so you know what results you are looking for). Have a time line for each patient to keep yourself organized. Develop your own clinical sheet (ask your co-workers for copies of their's and pick and choose from each one what works for you). Write everything down, your brain will be overwhelmed with things to remember, don't waste brain power trying to remember the small s&it. Above all remember, if you knew it all you wouldn't be a student.
