    Help!!! New grad military spouse

    At that point I’d hope to get a travel nursing contract so I could work out there

    Help!!! New grad military spouse

    That’s what I think we’ll do. Even though we both have been wanting this duty station for a long time I just do y think it’s the right time. I’m optimistic the opportunity will present itself again. Thanks for the advice!

    Help!!! New grad military spouse

    Update **There are other places on his list that are possibilities for us to stay in the states (NY, Alaska, Kansas) that have shorter stays such as just a year. Should we suck it up and go to a duty station we possibly won’t like so I can gain experience and we not separate and then just try for Germany the next go around? Thank you all for the advice so far! It’s been really helpful!

    Help!!! New grad military spouse

    So my husband is in the army and he just got a list of duty stations that he could choose from to get stationed in next year. From the list is seems like we will most likely be getting stationed in Germany (I forget the name of the base but I think it has like 35,000 soldiers on it). I just recently passed my NCLEX in MD and I’m finishing up my bachelors degree and will graduate in June. My husband will most likely be going to Germany in October of 2020 and it will be for 3 years. I have so many questions when it comes to starting and maintaining my career as a nurse. What are the chances I’m able to get a job as a new grad in Germany? If I decided to follow my husband and wasn’t able to find a RN job for those 3 years what would happen to my license and how would it be trying to start my career when we return to the states? Should I just stay in the states and gain experience while continuing to look for jobs in Germany in hopes of being able to eventually reunite with my husband? I’m just so confused on what I even possibly want to do since I don’t even know my options and I don’t even know who to go to on base to get answers other than this forum so I can make an educated decision. I don’t want to separate from my husband (especially for 3 years!) but it’s starting to feel like that’s my only option if I want to get my career as a nurse started. Any advice would be great!

    I feel like im going to fail!

    That's what I think is going to end up happening. I've accepted my anxiety isn't going to go anywhere lol. I just know when I graduate I'll look back and be like I worried so much for nothing.

    I'm a good student. I always end up doing well and don't harm the patient and ask questions when I'm unsure. It is just my anxiety that makes me think all of a sudden I'm going to fail and be this horrible incompetent person.

    Idk if anyone else feels like this but my anxiety when it comes to nursing school is through the roof. I did one semester at nursing at CCBC Catonsville and had to take a break this semester due to financial issues that caused me too much stress during the semester. I'm going back in the spring but for some reason I have major anxiety about how well I will do. I've always done well in school and I've never gotten this nervous or doubtful before but for some reason now that I'm in nursing school I feel like the worst student and that I'm not good enough to get through it. Someone please help and give me advice or words of encouragement. Clinicals make me the most nervous, I have this crazy feeling that I'm going to be that one student that hurts a patient or makes all the stupid mistakes and will get locked out of the program ( over exaggeration I know but I can't help it). Plenty of people tell me it's not that bad, that the instructors know this is a learning process and it's pretty easy to correct mistakes that as long as I'm safe the rest isn't that bad. Idk I'm just freaking out
