Hey guys and gals,
Im applying to nursing school for the spring of 2013 and im worried that im making the wrong decision. My ultimate dream is to be a Registered Nurse and work in labor and delivery, however im worried that I wont be able to "think like a nurse". Do they teach you this in nursing school? Im also worried that I wont get over my fear of talking to patients. I have my CNA certification but have not worked as a CNA. When I was getting "clinical" hours for my CNA I was yelled at by an elderly woman. (not because I was doing something wrong but because I had not started to do anything yet) This totally freaked me out and I had to leave the room. Do you gain confidence on how to speak to patients during nursing school?
Your advice is appreciated!
