How to Maximize Your Clinical Practice

During your accelerated BSN clinicals, you will work alongside top healthcare professionals in diverse medical settings—which not only provides you with great patient care experiences but also connects you with potential future employers.

Five ways to make the most of your clinicals:

  1. While everyone wants to make a good first impression, you are not expected to be a master clinician from the start. So, if you have a question, do not be afraid to ask it. It is, however, a good idea to prepare for your clinicals in advance. For example, if your clinical covers obstetrics, researching pregnancy issues if rotations involve obstetrics. You should also have an understanding of each clinical location’s mission and values.
  2. Preceptors or clinical instructors set the tone for the type of experiences you will receive during your accelerated BSN clinicals, so it is important to build rapport and trust with them as well as be respectful of their time and efforts.
  3. It is ultimately your responsibility as to how much you learn and experience during your clinical rotations. Do not be afraid to let your preceptor or clinical instructor know how you best retain information. And, if you are having trouble with a certain concept, it is ok to see if it can be taught a different way.
  4. Patients are people, not a medical diagnosis, so communication is key to quality care. Be sure to take the time during your rotations to build rapport and trust with patients by being a good listener and showing you understand their needs.
  5. It is important to approach your clinical rotations as you would a job—meaning you should be on time, look the part and be ready to assist wherever necessary, even if it involves answering the phone at the nurse station.
