So, I have a very important question for those of you who made it through nursing school already and have found the key or key's to a truly successful, informative and very knowledgeable career as a nurse. I am currently in my 5th semester out of 6 in my traditional BSN program and I honestly feel DUMB!!!!! I truly want to be a GREAT nurse and not just an average one that goes out just to do the job and go home. I want to know what I'm talking about and be confident in my skills and knowledge. I don't know if it is my nursing program that isn't preparing me for what I need to know, or if it is just all on me or a combination of both. Can I please get suggestions on what I should do to truly increase my knowledge base to where I can feel confident and go in to the hospital knowing that I have what it takes? Any help is greatly appreciated. Thank you all so much for the support.
