I m in third semester of RN program. 1st 2 were fun and all was well. Now I am finding that with 3 patients and three diff nurses, plus preceptor, I am no longer getting things done or prioritizing well!
The worse part is that I thought I was doing just fine til my teacher says, 'can we talk?'
Then I feel awful and another student tells me it's ok we all go through it it's part of learning and instead of feeling better I get more tears.
I put no one in danger, just my three nurses to report to we're saying how did she get through to this level to my teacher,
How will I care for 5 or 6 after graduation if I can't do 3?
The other problem is that I am academically almost perfect-so there is too much contrast between my book learning skills and real life function in chaos
I do great in what if scenarios then the real one takes me too much practice for people's comfort-is there a way to get 2x as many clinical hours- I think I would do well if that could happen
My teacher says how can you answer all the Qs right and then not be efficient on the floor? You are working like a CNA not a nurse.
Finding my nurse to tell something I need to x 3
Finding where a thermometer that isn't being used and works
Getting a free computer
Feeling like gumby stretched to the max
No one else is having these problems-
