0Oct 12, '13 by PediatricRNTXNursing school is going to be what you make of it. For example, a traditional prog will spend a semester on pediatrics, you literally get 6 days at UHV. So when u do clinical, get in there and do and see stuff! Try not to waste it being scared ( I was terrified! ).
When I graduated I did not feel ready to start working. I dont think any new grad does. I was blessed to find a new grad residency to see me through! (Apply early for those!!)
First get through shool, then worry about being a new nurse. That is a whole different challenge. One thing at a time.
Honestly, I hated nursing school and my first yr as an RN was incredibly tough and I think I didn't like nursing. I still have horrible days, but that happens with any job in any career.
Now, 2 yrs under my belt, I am confident enough to work alone (as in running a dept), I like my job, im glad I changed careers, my shedule is the bomb, I get paid well, and most of all (why I became a nurse).., I help sick children as a career!!!
It can be done.
