Well, yesterday, I had the pleasure of being a "nurse for a day". It was a great experience, I got to shadow a RN on a med/surg floor. Wow. It was very interesting to say the least.
The first patient we saw had an infection in his stomach area. I got to see a sponge vaccum? I'm not sure if that's the correct term...
Anyway, about five minutes after being in his room, I started to feel sick. I started sweating so badly... and in about 3 minutes, I completely sweated through my blouse.
Throughout the morning, I felt this was twice more. I assume that it's just because I'm not used to seeing things like this. (I'm not a nursing student yet.)
Did most people go through this? At what point do you stop feeling this way? How do you know if you'll never get over it?
I'm pretty disappointed in how my body reacted. I really wanted to be in there learning, but it's like my body was just out of control. How do you overcome this?
