Thank you so far for the responses about the job interview
Is it normal as a soon to be graduate, to have feelings of:
1) Am I smart enough to cut it as a nurse?
2) Will I know what to do
3) Will I be able to function independently, ETC.
I have done an internship in addition to my clinicals, and worked as a nursing assistant, but really, I have no experience doing anything absolutely independently, and I am freaked out about it!
I know as a new nurse I will be working with someone , but I afraid because when I was trained to be a nursing assistant, the training was horrible. The stuff I was supposed to learn on orientation didn't happen (e.g. no one needed a urine specimen collected, no one needed an enema, ETC). so I was TOLD how/what to do but not shown, and didn't get to do it on my own. So I didn't learn it.
When I was off of orientation, it came up and I didn't know how to do it. So I had to ask to be reshown, and I felt like I was stupid and I felt like I was wasting that person's time.
I hope this doesn't happen to me when I'm a nurse!
