I am at the end of my first semester of nursing school and I just finished up clinicals. During my evaluation my nursing instructor talked to me about my communication skills because she said she's very concerned. I'm a quiet type of person but I feel I have improved throughout the semester in talking with my patients and just being able to walk in their room and introduce myself. I feel I have to work on confidence and communication, but I felt terrible after talking with her. She hasn't decided what to do yet...she might not pass me and I am really worried! I want to move on to the next semester in the fall. I loved clinicals and I really truly want to be a nurse! Has anyone else experienced this before? What can I do?
