Hello, I am actually looking for some inspirational advice and / or support. I am a first year nursing student in a part time program. The program (LCC) is a great program, so I know that it is not the program. Last week was my first week in hospital clinicals. It did not go very well for me at all. I guess what I am looking for is some guidance as to if this will change. I was scared. I have never worked in a hospital, have worked in assisted living and with closed head injuries. Does it get easier. I left clinicals in tears both nights. After the first night I realized that I don't know an eighth of what I thought I did. I listened to report between two nureses and became very overwhelmed
. Is this normal, or is it me? If anyone can give me advice, please do. At this point I have contemplated if this is for me. I love helping others, the human body fascinates me, and I like to make others smile.
Thank you Tonia
