|I Hate Clinical.
||[Nov. 8th, 2012|09:05 pm]
I really, truly do. Okay I didn't mind my N391 clinical rotation last year at the Royal Alex, I rather enjoyed that unit. But this N491 clinical rotation is only two weeks in and it's already killing me. I just want to curl up in my bed and hide until January. Or at least until December 11th.
Cardiology is pretty interesting and the staff on my unit are fantastic, I find the learning curve is extremely high though and I still feel like I'm stumbling around and can't quite figure everything out. Let alone worry about all the other pieces of clinical rotations, like the assignments and learning goals and now this -incredibly- idiot 'leadership week' stuff which is basically a fancy way of saying you get to do a fuck ton more work and yay stress. I am already so very tired.
My instructor is what makes this rotation the most stressful. She knows everything about cardiology I swear, and her expectations continuously make it seem like we should as well, as 4th year nursing students. That kind of pressure is overwhelming. That's enough of my daily rant though.
