- Aug 7, '12 by GrnTeawhy would you be afraid of learning? look around: how do you think your co-workers learned them? they weren't born recognizing complete heart block :d . trust me, it's all quite learnable. seriously, not as hard as you think.
but you should never get past the nervousness.
some of you have heard me tell this story before. i was nearly four years out of school and had been staff in this fabulous icu for three, and i was actually pretty good for that. one day i was in the break room with sarah, a nurse of more than a decade's experience in the unit, one who could take every kind of patient that rolled up the hall, who was never flustered, always expert, always willing to teach and explain. i asked her when i would stop feeling scared when i sat in report. she smiled and said that every day before report started she felt a pang of anxiety, but that it passed when she started working. she said that when that little stab of fear went away she would have to go somewhere else, because it's what keeps us awake and sharp. i never, ever forgot that (and here i am telling that story again, smumble-mumble years later), and i am happy to pass it along to you.
