How can I be a nurse when I feel like I completely suck at clinicals? We are in long term care right now. The facility is disgusting - the charge nurse is a wench - the nursing supervisor makes no bones about how she does NOT like our presence there.
I cannot believe some of the things I have seen - these poor elderly people who are definitelty NOT cared for the rest of the week. I can't even change a brief on a patient without two of my classmates (thank God for them!) help me. I have six children - you would think I could change a brief!!!
The instructor told us that our grades are "subjective" meaning we get a grade and it may be that the instructor didn't even see you one time with your patient. How do I get an 80 when she never even observed me? I probably deserved an 80, but regardless - who does "subjective" grading??
Don't know - just feeling sorry for myself and wondering if I would even make a good nurse.
