I'm starting nursing school
in June and I'm curious what grossed you out or surprised you the most the first time you did it. For example, I imagine that it will be hard for me to put in a catheter for the first time due to a horrible childhood experience with it.
I also did some job shadowing with a nurse practitioner in a teen health clinic earlier this year and was surprised at how embarrassed I felt over seeing people's genitals. It's not like I haven't seen it all before, just not a stranger's or up so close and personal wit touching. I almost felt like a peeping tom (I think it would have been better if the NP had asked the patients permission for me to observe of if I actually had something to do).
