I'm half way through my first semester of nursing school. I have had two tests. I got 100 on the first fundamentals test. I took my second test yesterday and think I got an 80. It was a lot of material and I missed memorization questions of all things. I was never good at those types of questions. Not bad but a high B student. I'm not terribly upset about my 80 or anything like that. I'm going to change my study habits a bit and hope it helps for the next test.
My problem is that I find I am just questioning all the time why I am doing this. What is the point? I don't think I like the role of the nurse so far (what I have learned). It's boring and overly complicated to me. Perhaps in time I will like it. I'm just not the kind of person to document and explain my actions. I am a doer. I can do the documenting and explaining but I don't like it. It is cumbersome and time consuming. So what do nurses do? I love the interacting with patients. We started clinical and are in week 6. I just don't like the writing why I did what I did and such. I like the cna aspect of the work but nurses don't do cna work, right?
