I have become one of those students... ya know the students who cry in class... err LRC! Yup that's me. When I first starting hearing/witnessing students crying in class I laughed and passed judgment and needless to say karma bit me in tush and taught me a lesson. It was not anything that was said about me or something that I did or didn't do but just overwhelmed and feeling disorganized. I was holding it all together until one of my instructors sat at are table to go over a few of our questions on skin hair and nail assessment. She must have sensed it because she asked me how I was doing and I guess that is what I needed to hear because it was at that point I had tears in my eyes. I tried holding it back but to no avail. She just listen and advised me to relax, I am not alone, and every new nursing student has to make adjustments. Before leaving I apologized and she commented that I wasn't the first student and I wouldn't be the last. She was awesome. I do feel a little better; I guess I just needed the release. I am just stressed over how to study for the tests and juggling everything that is going on right now. On a brighter note I got to speak to a senior nursing student earlier today for almost an hour and she was very comforting and gave me some great advice.

Thanks for letting me get this off of my chest. I know I will be a great nurse one day I just have to relax and take it one day at time.

You're human. I teared up in class during our Death seminar, and abuse seminar. We talked about pregnant woman who were abused (I was one) and child abuse (me again) I just couldn't hold back and the tears came rolling down. I don't see how I could have done anything to prevent it. I teared up in clinicals when I knew my patient was about to die. I went into the hall, I didn't let her see me. But I'm human. I am not generally an emotional person. More so when I get angry, but some things I am more sensitive too.

Sounds like you were at your point and it took the one thing to set it off. Now you feel better and will probably be better off because you let it go and got it off your chest. Believe in yourself and you will get through it.

I am a cry-er and I know it's probably going to happen to me. One time I was shadowing a nurse midwife in labor and delivery. Our patient just gave birth and at the instant I felt such an overwhelming force and joy that my tears welled up and I started crying. It was unbelievable and a little embarrassing but the nurses and the patient were wonderful.

I once cried in class---and I was the instructor. Not one of my finest moments but it happens to the best of us.

We had a few instructors cry and tear up at our death seminar day, which in turn made us cry LOL
