This topic has come up a lot, and I am glad!
Seriously everyone knows I have a horrible "fear" of vomit. Well, I am getting better at it. I am trying to because I know I can't NOT be around it if I am a nurse! I am a pre-nursing student so I have time. lol what I started off doing was every time there is a "clean up" needed at work, which actually happens more than one would think, I do it. I may run away gagging through out the middle of it but it's better than running away gagging at the sight of it and leaving it for someone else to clean up! This seems to be helping and I think it is all I can currently take. I was actually embarassed at first with this, because I thought "how can I be a nursing major and can't take vomit?" but I guess I will just have to deal. Know that you are definitely not alone, if you search you will see this is actually a common topic, suprisingly but reassuringly
It could be worse though, you could have a fear of blood! Yes, a girl on my floor is actually a nursing major and can not stand the sight of blood and refuses to look at it. She tenses up everytime someone gets a papercut, even. I think she might come into a bit of trouble in clinicals and beyond!
