Stressed Out Nurses Weekly, July 6, 2009

Clinicals are one of the most important parts of your nursing education. With everything that may be on your mind at the time, it's important to remember proper communication and etiquette during each one. To practice good etiquette and common courtesy during each of your clinical rotations:

  • Introduce yourself to the nurses on duty
  • Ask if you can help out in any way
  • Respect their territory and time
  • Always be polite
  • At the end, thank them for their time and help.
