I graduated nursing school
in June of 2001 and have already passed my boards. I have worked at several jobs. Mostly nursing homes and I never make it past orientation. I always panic and quit! I feel totally inadequate as a nurse. I am terrified of being a nurse. I did very well in school and clinicals, but didn't really care for the hospital setting. I really enjoyed Psych and planned to pursue that, but I haven't been able to find a position in Psych. Now, its almost a year after graduation and I have less then three weeks total nursing experience. Should I just hang it up and forget about being a nurse?? Has anyone else felt this way??

Usually when someone asks if they should find a new job my response is "If you are asking then the answer is probably yes". However, you are not asking to find a new job, you are asking if you should give up your career which is quite another story.
