It is my last week in clinical! I cannot believe it. Next week we have two class days and are off for 3 days for Thanksgiving. Then I will start my other various dietetic internship rotations, which are in MUCH quicker succession. Hopefully my blog will get a lot more interesting 🙂
Staff relief has been wonderful. It’s been my favorite part of the internship so far- I’m basically a dietitian at the hospital. The independence is great! Last week I was mostly covering the critical care unit as well as a few med/surg patients. I ended up doing so many tube feedings that I’ve become really comfortable with ordering them. This week, however, my preceptor has put me on a different floor; I saw oncology and progressive care patients (with many different diagnoses). The variety is refreshing…as well as the ability to actually speak to my patients, which is my favorite part!
