I am in my second semester Junior year in the BSN nursing program. I am in my second semester of clinicals. I have done med/sug, OB, and currently am in Psych. At our local Medical Center I have been hired on as Nurse Tech I on the Pediatrics floor, here that just means you are in school and working through clinicals. I have never been so nervous in my life! My biggest concerns are the parents of these children. Of course they are going to be protective of thier children but it's going to be hard on me when the parents ask me questions I'm not sure of or if they snap at me for some reason. I also am worried about the nurses. I had a bad experience my first semester with the nurses but my last rotation went great. Any of you that are currently nurses on any floor may know what I am talking about. When you first started how did you get rid of the feelings of 'being in the way' or feeling intimidated by the other nurses??? I think I just need some encouragement.
