Most rewarding day in nursing school was when a patient was so upset that I would not be back the next day she was almost in tears!!! I knew I had made a connection and made a difference to her. This was a patient that the night nurse had said was difficult and forgetful, and she was neither. Somehow we clicked and had both had a great experience.
Best day was a very busy one that I don't think I stopped for one second, just kept rushing from pt. to pt. At my school we get one or two patients per student, but mine was very low maintenance so I ran around helping other patients that did not have students as well as helping my classmates with their patients. The time just flew by, and when we were done my nurse looked me dead in the eyes and said a heartfelt "Thank you". I really felt like I did good that day.
Second best was my first IM injection - piece of cake!! I was petrified to do it but it was fine.
I just finished my first semester and about to start the second, so hopefully I have lots more "bests" to come! Several of my classmates had to relocate for school and I can imagine how hard that must be, but keep in mind it is temporary. You will make close bonds with some of your classmates and it will be worth it in the end. Good luck to you!!!
