hey!!!!!!!! i am about to lose it!! i have 5 mos. left in the lpn program and my clinical instructor came to me this morning and fussed at me!! i am discouraged now and want to give up, even though i have all my rn prerequisites and want to finish rn..
she called me into a patient's room and brought another student to watch me catheterize a female patient. i got so nervous that i contaminated the sterile gloves... she started hissing at me
i put everything together and was ready to swab the pt with cotton balls and she yelled at me because i was taking too long. the fricking cotton balls were all stuck to the tongs because there was not enough betadine soln in those stupid kits!!!!!!!! i got flustered and said i was trying but she was making me nervous.... she counseled me and said that i was not up to par and that she sees me as a student that does enough to get by and that's it... and she sees more potential in me... what the hell does that mean?? i really respect this teacher, but i feel like she's picking on me.... help!! i want to quit!!!!!!!!!!
