Med surg. nursing can be a mad jungle...especially early on in one's career.
But if your place is run such that even experienced nurses are often running around like hungry headless chickens with full bladders, then you need to get out there, anyway.
Perhaps another place....it's a tough call. You know you better than anyone here offering advice.
Follow your gut...there's time to make mistakes...you're on the right track to question your comfort zone.
You should NOT become a nurse if...
...you mind getting the body fluids of strangers on your clothes and shoes
...you think you'll have "magic moments" on a regular basis
...you cannot say "no" or prioritize tasks
...you are unnerved by multiple people telling you to do multiple things at the same time
...you think all your coworkers will be compassionate angels
