I had my last adult clinical today. Although I don't graduate until next semester, we won't have any more adult clinicals for the remainder of school. Psych doesn't really count, since we won't do a lot of true patient care in terms of meds or skills. It's a little scary, considering I've now "learned" everything I need to know about adult med-surg nursing.
While I know clinicals can't ever truly prepare you for what the real nursing world is like, it's strange that we get two semesters of one-day-a-week adult med-surg, and when it's over...it's over. We're now expected to have a firm grasp on what med-surg is like, even though we never had more than 2 patients, always had preclinical and time to research the patients, never got to do anything without supervision, and rarely had the opportunity to practice clinical skills.
All I can say is...if I were to be turned loose tomorrow, I might accidentally kill someone.
