    Anxious About Clinicals

    Hi everyone, I am starting my first semester of nursing school this fall. All my prerequisite courses are done! I'm very excited to start nursing school, but I'm nervous about the clinical experience. I have Generalized Anxiety Disorder. I am currently on SSRIs and have resumed therapy in preparation for the stress that comes with nursing school. My biggest fear is having a break down during clinicals. I'm afraid I'll buckle under the pressure and I'll cry if a nurse makes me feel dumb. My question is how do I grow thicker skin? How do I keep my composure and succeed in nursing school?

    Anxious About Clinicals

    Thank you again everyone. I am currently a nurses aide working in home care and everyone says I'll do fine interacting with patients. It's really the nurses that intimidate me! Lol but I'm working on trying to have a more positive attitude and not let those anxious thoughts prevent me from doing something I really want to do. I'm excited! I can't explain how much I appreciate you all chiming in! Thank you!
