To the ER!

Tomorrow is my first clinical in the ER! I am SUPER excited.  I seriously can't wait.  Of course I'm also a little nervous.  I mean what if I get in there & they expect me to know something I don't know?  Or to do something I've never done before?  I mean I guess that's the point of a clinical, but I guess I'm just overly worried about it because it's the ER & in my mind that means that everything is moving in a rapid pace...Of course this is a small town, so maybe I'm overdramatizing what it's going to be like...I guess I'll see tomorrow. 

Our clinicals are on Thursday & Friday, so for the next 3 weeks I'll be in clinical every Thur & Friday, on top of going to class Tue & Wed. & probably working some Saturdays & Sundays...February is about to get serious ya'll!

So tonight I'm going to get my stuff packed, get my lunch together & get to bed early so I can be there bright eyed & bushy tailed at 6:30 tomorrow morning.  Woohoo!!  Wish me luck! Or say a prayer, whatever  your thing is :D


  1. You should be in your clinical as I type. Just relax, have fun and learn all that you can.
    Don't worry about the nurses giving you something you can't do. As a nurse who loves to teach students - I won't let them touch the patient until I know that they know what to do. Ask tons of questions and learn as many skills as you can. Remember, the nurses don't expect you to know everything - you are a student! You'll do fine!

    1. You were right, they didn't ask me to do anything crazy. It was tons of fun & I'm excited to go back. Everyone was really nice & helpful.
