|My purple clinical equipment|
Yesterday was my first day of clinical for this semester (the practical part of nursing school, spent at the local hospital). My shift lasts from 2.30pm to 10.30pm. I am totally used to the morning shift, so this requires some adjustment.
Now to the exciting part of my night: I finally had the chance to insert a Foley catheter. Yes, I am extremely excited about this! haha
I have a feeling that I've become more confident, especially since I have been working at the assistant living place. The more I interact with residents and patients, the better I feel about myself and the skills I learned in school. My plan is to take every opportunity to perform any kind of procedure I can get my hands on. That way, I will learn and improve my clinical skills!
Next thing on the list: Starting an IV.
