I guess I just didn't think nursing would be this strict about EVERYTHING! Literally have to follow rules to the T. and I'm not used to that unfortunately.Yes, as I was reading the thread I was wondering whether maybe part of the problem is that you've never had to actually be responsible for anyone else before. A lot of what you're describing isn't "mistakes," it's fraud and falsification of medical records, which are both crimes. Yes, nursing is "this strict about EVERYTHING!", because individual's lives depend on your (all of our) personal honesty and integrity.I believe you have some serious soul-searching to do. I'm not sure how you made it through school and getting licensed as an LPN without really grasping that the field requires that you be honest and diligent about your professional responsibilities, but it sounds like you're starting to get the picture. You need to think seriously about whether following the rules "to the T" is something you are capable of and committed to doing, because that's what's required for you to continue in nursing. I don't say this to be mean, but, since you expressed concern yourself, let me just clarify for you that, yes, at this point, you are "a bad nurse." A dangerous nurse. If you continue the way you have conducted yourself so far, you won't have a license for long, and that will resolve the situation for you. But you have the choice of turning things around for yourself. Best wishes.
