so far in clinical I have had wonderful nurses and cna's to work with. I have been able to work with more than "my" patient so there have been many extra learning opportunities for me.I appreciate the RNs taking time out to help me and answer my questions so I in turn am willing to do small things for them to help out. Today I took popsicles to the freezer for my RN and answered 2 phone calls for her because she asked me to. I was glad to do it because she helped me by keeping me hopping caring for pts, after all, Im there to work and learn and an RN who is willing to step up and teach me when my instructor is with another student, is very much appreciated by me :) I always thank my RNs and CNAs for working with me because I do understand it is hard to do your "normal" work and keep in touch with a student too. Of course, we take care of our pt's VS and baths so that takes a bit of the load from the staff, and that goes a long way in building respect I think. If they throw something at us we go for it, whether we have done it or not. As a matter of fact, our instructor wants us to give meds multiple times.Once is ok if thats all the chance you get but if more is offered jump at it.
