I'm really worried that, I might be too stupid to continue on with nursing school, there were a few incidents earlier on in the week and they way, I answered and the questions and what, I said made me feel that, I'm really stupid.
The first question, I answered incorrectly class was about a 78 year old patient who has lung cancer and he was saying that "he wasn't going to have surgery and it was god's will that he die". I stupidly said that we have to respect his wishes not to have surgery while, I missed the point that the reason he could be refusing is because he is depressed.
The second one the scenario was there was a patient that was suspected of being intoxicated but the teacher didn't specify what he was intoxicated with so, I assumed alcohol and the answer i gave was checking the patients blood alcohol when doing an assessment and the correct answer was actually checking the patients blood sugar. The entire class laughed at me, I feel like such a moron, I should just stay a psw and not bother continuing on with my education because, I'm just too stupid.
The next day, I talked to the teacher after class about a subject that, I thought was a moral dilemma which is parents who refuse to vaccinate their children, when, I asked the teacher if he thought it was child abuse he rolled his eyes at me. He also then asked me how likely it was percentage wise for a nurse to die working at home or working for the military, I once again said something incredibly stupid, I said 25% of dying when working at home and 75% working for the military.
I should've realized, I'm just too stupid and not cut out for nursing or really any career that requires a brain.
