For 3 weeks, every Tuesday and Wednesday from 7am-4pm I went with my clinical group to Vantage Point Behavioral Health Hospital; we interacted with patients ranging from adolescents to adults and just talked to them and listened to their stories. It was a very humbling and enjoyable experience!
Since the beginning of October, every Tuesday and Wednesday from 6:30 AM- 1:30 PM I went with my clinical group to the Maples Nursing Home in Springdale. We did lots of different things ranging from helping change patients, bathe them, pass medicine, help feed them, and just spend time talking and getting to know them. It has been a great experience and I am excited for my future as a nurse!
