    Sorry it took me so long to respond, I want thank all of you again for your input. I did speak with my manager and I have been working with someone new for the last two weeks, its been a lot better. She's much calmer, and allows me more freedom to do my thing. I feel a little more confident and am more comfortable asking questions.

I am trying to use the rest of my time to improve my weak areas. though I still feel shy in some situations and I don't know if that will ever change. But it helps knowing that other nurses have been in my shoes and ended up being o.k.

    I am shy as well. Zoloft has really helped me though lol. Sometimes, I just don't click with certain nurses or instructors. I would find a different nurse, especially if other nurses have suggested this. I have nothing against strict instructors/nurses, but there's a line that is drawn, you can be tough..but still be someone students can talk to. I'd switch.

    (((soul))) sorry I missed this thread earlier. You do deserve better. I am sorry for all you are going thru. All I can say is follow your heart and best wishes. You can do this; you are meant to be a nurse from what I can see here.
