5 things they don’t (or can’t) teach you in nursing school

Any experienced nurse will note that there are just some things you can’t pick up in the classroom, no matter how thorough your notes.

In this week’s episode of “The Sean Dent Show,” on ScrubsBeat, Sean touches on five lessons that stay under wraps until you’ve gotten your hands dirty on the job. You can just think of this as a jumpstart on gleaning the knowledge only work experience will bring—no flashcards required!

If you’re already well on your way in the working world, be sure to share with us the advice you’d add in the comments section below.

    I would add – nursing school does not prepare you for the challenge of dealing with families, especially families in denial. When l first started, l was amazed at how much time, energy and effort it requires on some days dealing with the ‘significant others’. Also, l was not prepared to expect the sometimes ridiculous expectations of patients and families who watch ‘medical dramas’ on TV.
