We communicated with the client using clear language and she seems to understand everything we said although she did not respond. I was assigned to the patient by my clinical Instructor. Unfortunately, he was hospitalized. I asked my clinical Instructor another client to assign to as a student. I asked the nurse, who worked in my West side, where I could find information about my client. She explained me that most of information about the linen I could find in the computer. The nurse in our side was so nice.
She explained every her step without any secret. With my team mates we were able to participate in measured blood glucose level, injection of Morphine, Nitroglycerin patch, TAB shot. Become familiar with the computer system in our facility, clinical instructor was provided training for us. I have been used any opportunity to connect with my team mates, professor, and nurse. As a team, we participated in fire drill and communicated with clients. With the variety of racial and ethnic patients in hospitals today, nurses are faced with the problem of accurate assessing non-English speaking patients.
In my clinical day, I used knowledge of background languages such as Hebrew and Russian to help my team mates to understand some clients. In reflecting on my experience this week, I would say I am not alone in clinical, and my clinical instructor, team mates, and nursing staff all there to help each other in any situations. After clinical week, I feel that everyone helps each other. With my team mates I realized that we are team and need to help and collaborate with each other. The clinical week was cognitive and essential.
I was really enjoyed working with clinical professor, team mates, and nursing staff. There were a lot of necessary and Interesting information. It was a good experience to provide care for clients with such health conditions as Dementia and Alchemist’s disease. Next time I need to remember that we are students and some time feel Inexperience and uncertainty. To overcome all of these feelings I also need to remember that there are people to help me. I do not hesitate ask and offer assistance to others students, nurses, and SSW.
I learned that being a nurse Is not Just about ladling In providing prescribed medications, doing vital signs, and taking care of the client. Every aspect, communicating, and working together as a team all lead to becoming an excellent nurse. Now that I have experienced and practiced one day In clinical, I feel that with clinical instructor, team mates, and nursing staff I will be able to improve and strengthen my Skills. Communication Ana adjectively working Walt can toner this is I look forward to implementing all my learning skills in clinical situations.
