i certainly have moments when i feel so inadequate, like i am not meant for this, and that there are others better than me. well, yes there are indeed others better than me at something, but i'm also better than others at other things! thinking about that kept me going and changed my mindset (well, not overnight, i can say i'm getting "there"). don't get me wrong. i didn't apply for nursing school
in a whim. i did a lot of hard work, a lot of preparations and certainly a lot of studying and crying (oh, they do go together...) i have wanted to become part of the medical field my whole life, so i'm not about to throw everything away for just one moment of feeling inadequate. well, in other words, do not give up! ever!
i have been worrying about group work and stuff even before i was in nursing school because i always wanted to work on my own. however, i am lucky enough that the people in my section are really warm and generally nice that now, i enjoy doing group stuff! it's also a benefit that not all of us have our own "posse" so to speak, because that leaves everyone to interact with one another. (and well, it's still early in the term to have posses!)
i'm sorry to hear about your teachers, ikatiana21. they sound really horrible and mean. i am enjoying all of the lectures and labs we have been doing so far and it really depended on the instructors' being available when you want to talk to them and being generally accommodating to us. maybe as latenurse said, you can file a complaint? or just try and talk it out with the instructor in question (following the Chain of Command rule).
i hope you have a nice term. and remember, when life throws lemons at ya, make lemonade. do what you deem best. take care
