I am not sure if anyone can help me at all. Well its coming to the breaking point whether or not I should continue this final year of nursing or defer for another year. Apart from having 3 essays due a week apart, enuff pressure as it is. Well I did my first placement in surgical ward. I didnt do much today just TRIED to be buddied with an RN.
I dont know what is with me or about me that I seem to get nurses who dont want to be with me. I dont think I look like an Ogre as I am quite pleasant to look at. I dont have a wart on my nose
I get nurses who just rather run away from me. Today being first day, hectic and all that sure. But it dont do good for my self esteem where I am trying to build up confidence.
I am hoping for a better day tomorrow, other than that if it keeps up, I have to reanalyse my desire to be RN. As I am getting fed up with having sour nurses who are making me to be sourgrapes.
You see, I have to learn assertiveness and that comes with confidence, I dont want to say stuff to the nurse where it could come out wrong or sound b****y.
God I pray to get by the next 9 days as I am starting to think that this aint for me
Has anyone been in a similar situation?

It's a very tough program, but running away and sitting out probably isn't going to make it bettter next year. You're still going to have that week where three essays are due, and the schoolwork is going to be overwhelming.
We all from time to time in school and beyond face insecurities and doubts and question whether we can make it. You've made it this far. Put one foot in front of the other and keep going.
