hi there,im new to this forum,but its so nice to see somewhere where i can vent and ask people about how im feeling,i hope this turns out ok! lol my name is devon,im 22,and i just finished my first semester of my rn program at mcc in michigan.i had no medical experience,until my first once-a-week clinicals these past 8 weeks,id only been in a hospital 3 times in my life. needless to say i felt kind of lost.im a "worrier" and i always have been,i think i worry about everything...my very first clincal,i forgot to dry under a womans breast (lol i know) after a bed bath and felt sick all night worrying she would get an infection or something because i forgot.. i just worry im going to overload myself from anxiety due to my clincals and id love to know if its not just me...i feel great in lectures, but when it comes to the clincals i feel so incompetant still, im afraid to try procedures for the first time on a helpless patient without anyone there to supervise me to make sure im doing everything ok. then when i get home i just go crazy thinking about little things i did wrong at the end of the day...i flipped out today because i took my patient into the shower room at the nursing home, and then remembered the first day we went there we were told "no students in the shower room with a patient without an employee present!!" i asked the nurse before i did it and she didnt mentino anything....and i just forgot nothing happened, my patient was fine but i wigged out tihnking about it later and ended up calling my instructor as a crybaby mess,worried i would get in trouble....ive just never had to do anything where i feel i have so much responsibilty and it worries me to death ...any advice...i know its pretty bad -_-*!!
