Pros: recieving valuable clinical experience, providing essential adls to patients when needed, freedom to engage with drs, nurses and patients when permitted, was asked alot of questions to test my knowledge.
Cons: not being able to switch to different departments for valuable experience.
I worked on the Oncology/Med-Surg department and loved it. I dealt with all types of individuals in different stages of their sickness from certain cancerous stages to patients who were recovering from surgical care. I assisted the nurses with the patient ADLs when asked. I spent a good deal of my time replenishing the patients room supplies and the nurses station supplies. I assisted in the patient transportation to their correct testing sites. I ran lab specimens to their proper site when needed. I interacted with the patients and the DRs. giving them as exact detail I could of their condition(s).
