A desire to be the best that drives you to learn as much as posible.
Improve your observation skills.Triage, learn whats important in your environent and whats not. Be a constant observer this makes you an automatic observer after a while and you will observe and intervene automatically
Learn and pratice I.V.and venipuncture skills asap.
Get good with auscultation. Pick a Pt with a very obvious problem with a DX such as Pneumonia. Become familar with the sounds of different pathologies. Never fake it or say you hear something you didn't and this will put you way ahead
Help Pt's help you by listening and being open and professional. Seperate the useless info from what you need to know. Pick continuing ed that furthers your career. Always listen when a DR.evals a Pt.. Don't be afraid to ask questions when o.k..
Try to plan and commence your plan regarding your pt care and expectations/outcomes and time management.
