I know this is old, but today I am stressed out, sad, and feeling quite incompetent. I can only do so much as a telephone nurse and yeah I am not perfect.

I am quite down today

I sent you a PM. This job can cause extreme amounts of mental stress. Just know you aren't alone. I am the original poster of this topic, had to change my screen name.

Hi I'm so glad I came across this post. I've been a nurse since 2003 and have worked in various areas of nursing over the yrs. After taking some time out I went back to work again. I just took a tele triage for healthline. And I've been overwhelm by the 2 weeks training. Not enjoying it so far. Feel like I'm no good at it. I was meant to go solo this week but still getting preceptored. The company is been very supportive by providing me the help and I get to work from home. But I feel I'm no good at it. I feel like quitting already. 😢

Hi Neave! It's ok! It is hard at first but you will be fine. It takes around 6 months to feel more comfortable. Try to look at the positives. You get to work from home! PM me if you need to. Take care

I have been there and honestly have felt that being a nurse is not for me many times.

A couple of weeks ago I reviewed all my audit reports to see my mistakes so I don't make them again.

My newer train of thought is to take each call at a time, go above and beyond each call so no one acuses me of "not helping" after I end my calls.

Plus+++ I am starting to workout every day & drinking more water.

Don't give up on yourself, it's a brand new branch of nursing & 3 years ago when I started I felt like a new grad. No calls are exactly the same and some more challenging than others.
