I'm a 53 yr old nurse who just graduated last may (2005). I've always wondered if I had some form(s) of learning disabilities which have never been diagnosed. I have done well in school at times and other times have not. I seem to need a certain environment to excel. But not sure what that particular environment entails.
I have recently tried working in critical care ICU and not done well. I am now on a medical floor (past 5 months) and still having difficulties. The people i'm working with now are very supportive and tell me It takes time to get organized. But i'm hating the fact that I still forget things that i need to give at report, or to tell others about particular patients. I just don't feel I'm on top of things. I feel the structure of the environment is not "right" for my brain. I can't seem to get and stay organized enough. I'm wondering if anyone else has had this and what they have done about it.
Just wishing i could find a place to be where I would excel.
Any feedback greatly appreciated.
