how long does it took you to complete your iv requirements?
i also also have the same problem and i feel the same way. i even asked the nurses to allow me to do it myself. they only allow me to assisted them with the iv insertion procedure. then this particular nurse said: can you do it? the needle is too big... over and over again. :argue: you didn't even inserted your first case... then she looked in the eye and i looked back and said that i can. she even asked for our school name and then told us to look around another unit for our case and come back if we can't find. the only thing left for her to say is, "nope, you're not allowed!" or "you can't!".
when we came back, she already did the procedure herself and gave me the case details. i swear if you can only see me that day, i almost kneel in front of her to let me do it myself. it was so disappointing. i've learned from a fellow participant that she too didn't have the chance herself.
so now, i have a few question:
do i have to file my cases as soon as possible after my case completion? or is it ok if i hold it for a few months before my ivt training certificate expire? :stone
i am planning to complete my cases in a different hospital. start all over again from scratch... is this possible? how?
i need your help asap before it's too late. thank you very much, my dear colleagues.
