Student nursing presentations are a required and important function of nursing school. When working independently in the hospital or in a clinical setting, a registered nurse is usually the supervisor of patient care for an 8-to-12-hour shift. Clear communication is key otherwise the patient’s health is at risk.
The RN will make rounds on the patient(s) and direct CNAs, LVNs, and other vital staff members to make appropriate action. This message must be conveyed not only in medical lingo but also to provoke open communication about the responsibilities of the care team.
While student nursing presentations are often tedious and lackluster, they provide an excellent role-playing opportunity before you step into the real world.
