Year 2/Day 174

Year 2 - Day 174

I had my first day of clinical today.  We are on the cardiac floor this semester.  They aren’t doing a true preceptorship this time.  Instead, it’s like all of our past semesters where we are in small groups and follow a different nurse each day.  My group seems pretty nice and the staff was very friendly.  Looking forward to seeing what I can learn on this floor.

Well, I was supposed to have clinical today…but…I cancelled it.

I have been so worn out lately, it’s been hard to focus.  My preceptor wasn’t working this weekend anyway, so I used that as an excuse to not go. 

I’m not in any trouble, but now I have to make up those 12 hours somehow in my already busy schedule.  Oh well.

Two big things to talk about today.

First, clinical went really well yesterday but I-am-beat.  I didn’t realize how much a 12 hour shift would take out of me.  What really bothered me was the fact that it was dark when I went in and dark when I was headed home.  Blah.  Other than that though, it was great!  My nurse was covering triage, which I think was a great first day experience.  Also, I never knew L&D had it’s own triage.  Haha

Second, I’ve had to make drastic changes to my schedule.  This semester is taking a lot of my time and I just can’t work as much as I have been.  So now I’m only working 3 days a week, or 5 shifts.  Sucks money wise, but if I don’t pass this semester it doesn’t matter.
