Student Nurse (Ancien employé) – Mississauga, ON – 20 août 2015
Report to work on time, by respecting other nurses shift-work time. Assessment to patients, vital signs, review of patient charts and identify priority of care. I love the therapeutic communication with the patients and teach them when they require more information.
My clinical practicum at Trillium Health Centre was a good preparation for my up-and-coming practice as a nurse.
Student Practical Nurse (Ancien employé) – Mississauga, ON – 31 juillet 2012
My 200 hours of clinical practice at Unit 4B at Trillium Health Centre in Mississauga enabled me to get first hand experience in the practice of nursing in a Canadian hospital setting. I attended end-of-shift reports; did physical examination and health assessment; administered medications; did documentation (manually and electronically); developed a comprehensive nursing care plan for my assigned patient; performed nursing skills such as IV management, activities of daily living (ADLs) assistance, patient turning, transferring; and intake and output monitoring. All these done in an organized, prioritized, and proper way under the supervision of my buddy nurse and the clinical instructor.The hospital staff was generally cooperative and polite. I was also able to practice my therapeutic communication skills.Being an internationally educated nurse, this was an important step in preparation to eventually joining the Canadian health care system workforce. What I found challenging at first was time management and the unfamiliarity of the workplace environment. How to use certain equipments and devices and where to find them; how to navigate through the medical information system of the hospital's computer software are examples of unfamiliar workplace environment. But it did not take long for me to familiarize myself with equipments and devices and to organize and prioritize client care. After all, I already learned the basic nursing principles in my home country and completed nursing courses at George Brown College. The part I enjoyed most was the joy and satisfaction of making aplus... person's day better with the care I rendered. Overall, my clinical practicum at Trillium Health Centre was a good preparation for my up-and-coming practice as a nurse.moins
