Clinical Placement

Good Essays
The first six weeks of the nursing program has forced me to turn myself inside out and examine/analyze a lot about my way of life. It has forced me to look deeply into my communication and listening skills. I have learned many different ways to deal with situations and problems that may arise with my impersonal and Intrapersonal relationships. I’ve been trying out different skills with my roommate and trying to really understand what we do in class by actually doing it. I have always found it hard to express myself if I thought I would hurt someone or that a confrontation may arise. But I am now more aware of different ways to handle conversations so that I express myself fully ant the outcome is wondrous and successful. - author unknown

Touch, to me is the most valuable sense. Being able to touch and feel your environment and the world around you is such an important tool.

This closely reflects on our society and the recent paranoia about sexual harassment, abuse etc, that is discouraging parents from touching their children affectionately. - author unknown

Continuing Care - ward 23 (RLI) Ward 23 is a combined elderly rehab and rheumatology ward. The merger of two formerly independent units has resulted in some tensions and unsettling within the staff, but overall the ward is coping well with what must have been a difficult transition phase. I really enjoyed this ward. The philosophy of care is built on maximising independence (along the lines of Orem's model) and promoting dignity and self worth to the (mainly) elderly client group. Although one cannot get away from the fact that it is a hospital ward, the aim is to make the environment as 'normal' as possible. Patients' own clothes are

    variety of resources and services offered by my clinical placement. Thus, prior to this situation, what I could have done to avoid feeling uncertain, was to ensure that I was knowledgeable about the Centre’s resources and services ahead of time. This would have been more proactive, instead of waiting until a time client is asking for help to become informed. Thus, in the future what I will do differently is when I first begin my clinical placement to be self-directed by asking questions to my preceptor…

    Throughout my final 3 weeks at my placement, I have grown and overcome so many obstacles. I have accomplished a wide range of skills since the beginning and have been improving on them as I gained experience. During this placement and throughout my experiences and skills, I have realized that I enjoy working with geriatric patients. I feel as though they don’t have family around all the time so they enjoy having someone there to talk with them and help them. At the end of every day I feel that as…
