I am so glad you have come across clinical instructors that are passionate about the nursing profession! Nurses that have a passion for this profession have a passion for fostering good experiences and supporting student nurses in their journey to becoming an RN.
I teach nursing clinical in an undergraduate program and have the same passion for education as I do as a nurse. You are entering a field that is incredibly challenging on many levels. Outside of becoming clinically competent, you will have experiences that make you think philosophically about the world, your relationships and your way of thinking and being. You begin to see the world differently... more brightly and multi-dimensional. You will question the healthcare system and how it makes it difficult to provide the holistic care patients and families deserve and you would want for your loved ones.
You have days you may cry or have a flood of emotions and thoughts of, "I don't understand..." This is all okay. Always go toward those that are supportive, kind and willing to offer advice and their knowledge. Do not spend too much time thinking about or taking personally, those that do not have these qualities. Keep in mind, even those with "rough personalities" or a different personality than our own may have these qualities. We all express ourselves differently.
Through nursing school
and beginning your work as an RN, you develop a personal philosophy of what nursing is and means to you. Stand by this! Do not go along with the crowd. Dive into research articles, think about and practice evidenced-based practice. Further your education when it is the right time for you. If you at some point, leave the bedside, never forget where you came from and where the heart of nursing is. The bedside. Always advocate for our profession and not an institution.
Keep your enthusiasm and never let any person or nurse take that away from you! I wish you the best in your studies and welcome you into our beautiful profession!
