Ok so all I looked forward to in nursing school was this day! So I got through school, passed NCLEX and finally gotmy license in the mail. So tomorrow is my big day, and I am actually abit nervous and scared. Not of doing the job,but that I'll forget everything I learned in school. I graduated with honors, got the award for most proficient clinically and still I am nervous. I suddenly feel incompetent.
I went out and got a new notebook in hopes of getting more organized. As a CNA I only used my binder to clip my itake sheet onto, but for Nursing I have a different idea of how I want to use it. I cleaned out my bag, got new pens and hi-liters, made sure my drugbook is packed and still......Yep, I'm nervous, but excited! Does this make sense??? I mean, I know I graduated, I passed boards, I have a license that says I am a Nurse, but I don'tfeel like a nurse yet! LOL! Maybe after my first shift tomorrow it will hit me! I HOPE SO! OMG! Here I go! in less than 12 hours I will be taking report on my patients!
Ok ......off to get my kiddos settled, take a shower and get my scrubs
