What you're feeling is normal, I think. I felt that way when I finished LPN school and again when I finished the ADN. I felt as though my safety net of the 'student nurse' was gone; now I was IT!! The NURSE to whom the patient would look for healing, caring and understanding; the one the doctors would yell at, order up, and expect to be perfect; the one the 'older' nurses would have for lunch!
Those days did come, but I knew what I knew, I had confidence in my ability. No lie, it took awhile to feel really comfortable in this, but I persevered...I was trained, tested and had proven myself, and as time went by, it all paid off.
It's been 30 (?!) years since I earned the Clinical Nursing Award; my career has spanned the spectrum from LPN to RN to Charge Nurse and Nursing Supervisor. I WAS yelled at, abused and yes, even eaten alive a few times. Each of these made me stronger.
BUT, the times I remember best are the tender touches, grateful smiles and even deaths made perhaps a little easier because I was there. I am a nurse, proud of it and grateful for all the experiences which have molded me, as a professional AND a person.
May it come to you...know your self, know your ability and feel confident that now YOU ARE THE NURSE!!!
