I am 30 years old and I have never seen a dead human being. Ever.
I know I will be seeing a corpse during my LPN training and of course will be when I become a nurse, but this aspect of becoming a nurse is the scariest for me.
I can deal with poop/vomit/blood/ulcers/pus etc and none of it bothers me. But I really freak out at the thought of being near/having to handle a dead body.
Any words of wisdom for me?
It's really been weighing on my mind lately.
