So my certification was exp in Nov 2012. I was late to get my recertification b/c I was on maternity leave. So after being up for more than 24hrs and having my dtg in the hopsital I decided that I would try to block all my issue and go to class. After all this was nothing new to me. Wrong! I started out fine. During my mega code my instructor pointed out that she could tell I was nervous. Told me to take my own pulse and breathe. It was over from there. End result... I failed. So on top of ot all. I just transferred to the ED from a CCU. I went and paid for my ACLS recert and got it before I even was scheduled back to work. I emailed her and told her my situation, not trying to make excuses. She told me that for know until I should be independently transfering or caring for pts with cardiac issues. Ugh!! I'm not even off orientation and feel like I def didn't portray a good impression to my mgr. I feel so stupid and am feel like she may think she made a bad choice in hiring me. Worry she may think now I am not cut out for the ED. I know I have a lot to learn and "was" confident that I would do well. But my confidence has been shot.... I am always tough on myself when I fail!! I even worry I may lose my job. Am I being to hard or is that a possibility! ! What now !!!
