I had my first clinical this semester yesterday at Arizona Heart and it was my first 12 hour shift. This is AZ Heart Hospital. It's a small specialized hospital and very student friendly.
So my first 12 hour shift...oh my goodness was it long! I enjoyed it and learned a lot and I am loving AZ Heart, but I was tired afterwards. I was on the telemetry floor and I was busy and learning a lot. I passed a lot of meds, hooked people up to ECGs, did discharges and admissions, and saw a Synchronized Cardioversion. It was fun and it was long. I'm still tired. I'm beginning to feel more like a nurse! :)
