This is my first post, so I hope I'm doing this right. So, I'd really just like to get to the point here.
I'm in the RPN program, in my second semester. I just started clinical rotation in September at a long term care facility. The second part of my first rotation is going to be at the hospital, I'll be working on the rehabilitation unit (in-patient).
I'm so very excited, I've been waiting since day one, to go to the hospital.
I'm also feeling a little bit discouraged though. Reason being is because I failed the first part of rotation one, at the long term care facility.
Faculty says that if I pass my clinical placement at the hospital, then I'll be able to move forward with the rest of my classmates onto rotation two. However, if I fail, then I will have to repeat rotation one (next semester).
So the reason why I'm putting this out there, is because I need some help. Do any of you have experience in rehabilitation? Have you taught students in rehabilitation?
I really need some advice, because I want to pass. I know that it will probably be different than the long term care facility, so any help would be greatly appreciated.
-What can I expect when I go there?
-How can I go above and beyond in a clinical setting like this?
-What is the daily routine like, from when I get there to when I leave? (Though it might be different for each hospital, i'd just like a general idea)
Thank you so much!! & Thank you for taking the time to read this, I know it's a lot and kind of all over the place.
Take care :)
