I am currently with a student nurse and I am graduating in about a month. I have worked on a Ambulance for 3 years and 4 years as a combat medic. I have noticed that when it comes to washing, bathing, and bath-rooming a patient is still hard for me, I feel very lost when it comes what to do. I do fantastic in all other areas and have gotten nothing less then a 95% on all exams and nursing skills. I was wondering if it would be beneficial to take a CNA course? Thoughts?
Have you considered taking a course in Clinical Research Nursing?
sollerscollege.com offers a short 50 hours certification program that specifically teaches skills on clinical research nursing.
Clinical research nursing focuses on the planning, organization and monitoring of clinical trials.
I think your confidence comes with experience and on the job training. You will feel more comfortable with time. Engage your patient if possible and talk with them about what you are doing ask thier permission to give them care . Its not easy but you can do it! Good luck!!
