I'm registered in a Nursing program
next year but I'm having cold feet. I've changed my career plan so many times and have finally decided on nursing this year. I was super excited but now I'm not sure I have the personality for it. I'm prepared for the hard classes and homework but I'm really nervous about actually working with patients. I'm a shy person and worry I don't have the outgoing, friendly personality successful nurses do. I don't feel "the calling" that most future nurses say they feel. Blood, wounds, mucus, and other bodily fluids scare the hell out of me. I'm terrified of making a life or death mistake or being awkward around patients.I'm not sure if I can even make people feel at ease. I can't even pinpoint what drew me to nursing. I am so excited to start the program next year but am I going to succeed? Do I have what it takes to be a good Registered Nurse or should I consider trying something behind the scenes?
