I just found out that I get to do my Capstone in the ER!! Capstone is our very last clinical, and it is where we are going to learn the most. We are assigned to a preceptor (an experienced nurse) who agrees to work with us for 180 hours. We work their shifts with them for six weeks. I am extremely excited about this for many reasons, including getting one-on-one attention, working with a nurse who wants to have a student (not one who found out at the start of her shift that she has one), and hopefully finally getting some clinical skills figured out! The ER is going to be an excellent learning opportunity, and I really believe that once I am done with my Capstone, I will be able to confidently go into a job interview and say that I am prepared to be a nurse. I can’t wait for July 10th!!
