Then I had to do the written aspect of the physical assessment. Unfortunately it was not pass/fail but graded. I had two hours to write up an exhaustive note on my findings from the physical assessment. I didn't think I would need two hours, but it ended up that I did. It came to 5 pages. In reality, I'll probably never write up a 5 page physical assessment as a nurse. But I'm glad to know how to do it and how to do it right.
One component of our physical assessment skills test was professionalism. So, we had to wear our Vandy scrubs today, complete with a Vandy patch on the left shoulder. It was fun, made me feel like the real thing.
Oh yeah, I cut my hair this week.
