I had five different positions that needed to be filled and they were split into eight different shifts giving student a break to attend their classes. I made the deadline for registration forms on November 22. This gave me time to make laminated time cards for each patient that is donating and finalize the appointment sheet.

At this time, we went to each nursing station on each floor and introduced ourselves from the organization we were from and how we will be providing patient care to the clients in this setting. We were educated by our clinical instructor on the different access codes in the building, the policies and guidelines, our assigned floor and the appointed personal support worker. Our role of professionalism as a nursing student was represented as we came prepared and greeted each healthcare and staff member.
