First day of Clinical tomorrow

I'll be starting my clinical rotation tomorrow.  I'm pretty excited about it.  Next week I'll be doing twelve hour shifts. I'm told that next week is an orientation week. I have to dress business casual, so I'm not sure if I'll actually have any patient contact. I'm bringing some scrubs and a lab coat with me, just in case I need them.

I've now finished the first two years of a three year Respiratory Therapy Program.  The third year is the clinical rotation part of my training. Everyone's telling me that everything will start to make sense during clinical. I hope they're right. I should graduate from the program in December of this year.

I picked up my NRP card yesterday.


  1. Congrats! I can't believe how fast that went (not sure you feel the same).

    Good luck with the Clinicals, you'll be great I'm sure of it!

  2. Good luck! You are done in December?
    My clinical year is from May 2010 to April 2011!

  3. All the classroom and book training can't compare with the stuff you'll learn in your clinical rotation. Congrats and good luck!

  4. I think I've found a picture of you listed under "adventure" posted at -

  5. @Heidi: Thanks

    @Lung Lover: Yes. I'm done in December. Not having a summer vacation sucks. Graduating 4 months sooner, doesn't suck.

    @Steve: Thanks

    @Guzzo: Couldn't find it. Looked at pages 1-10. Couldn't figure out how to do a search for 'adventure".
