Hi everyone! To make a long story short, for two rotations I have shown my stress and frustration in, shall we say, NON-professional ways. Class too. I'm really annoying to everyone else in the class. Since it happened in two rotations, they could have kicked me out, but all 4 faculty voted to give me another chance. But they did make me sign a contract. If I so much as roll my eyes at someone in the next 7 weeks, that's it. Now, I'm not mad, but this is really scary. On the bright sign, to paraphrase the contract, they said I'd be a really good nurse if it weren't for these issues.
Pray for me you guys. THANKS
LPN by December (I hope) :)
I understand the stress level and needing someplace to "vent" it. Have you thought about talking to your primary care physician about this.....maybe they could help you in this respect. I also make sure that I do something everyday, might be exercising, )I do martial arts when I have time), fast walking....anything that will let some "steam" off.
My positive thoughts are with you on this one...let us know how things go!:)
I had the exact same problem for the longest time.
This is something you have to remind yourself of constantly. I put a little card in my pocket, with a little saying on it to remind me.
You can always go into a linen closet or bathroom and vent if you need to.
Also, you can go to the instructor, tell her, "I am feeling like *********, and need to talk so I don't vent this here." She might be willing to go aside with you for a few minutes.
Most of it is stress, or lack of confidence in yourself for that few minutes.
Take a deep breath, and remember that you, too, are human.
It takes a big, big person to admit to a fault, any fault, and then to do something about it.
You can do it, and remember that we are all here for you.
Vent here if you need to.
Oh and I am taking Taekwondo..that does help..I should walk or practice at home on the days I don't have it
Good for you, for having the courage to recognize and change something that is changeable.
I salute you!
Keep up the good work, and many prayers and good thoughts going out to you.
Good luck! Keep at it. Like they said it takes a lot to recognize a problem and deal with it. You should be proud that you are doing that. Also, practice or walk like you said it will help. I have been off and on running since I started Nursing and it helps when I do it. Keep in there. You can do it.
Misty has a great idea. Physical exercize is one of the best things that you can do for yourself not only physically but also mentally. I try to do yoga every other day, and on the days that I do it I am a different person. Just keep on going you will make it soon.I have to keep telling myself that.
Good Luck Jessica
Proud of you!!! When I was doing martial arts (haven't had time this semester) I felt wonderful. Breaking a good sweat was the best thing that I could have done for myself!!
Keep up the good work!!
