Hello, I am a current Pre-Nursing student who works as a PCT/Phlebotomist. One of the things that always worried me was how I was going to react when one of my patient begins to decline and eventually passes. I have yet to experience those emotions AS IT HAPPENS. I have participated in code blues and came close but they were fine. My worry is freezing or crying when it happens. I have never experienced a passing in front of me...and to be a nurse you have to be strong and not show emotion. Has anyone else experienced this as a PCT?... How did you react?
