I am currently a CNA who is looking into nursing school. I have one problem. I cannot stand the sight of large amount of blood. I can watch videos of anything involving blood and be fine with it. I can deal with small skin tears, small cuts, but when it comes to big wounds, bloody noses, or getting blood drawn. I can feel myself get tense up and feel the urge to pass out. I wanted to get over this so badly. I have been a CNA and done home health. I have never told my bosses about this issues and just got lucky I guess. Well I got hired and finished orientation at a hospital. My question is, should I tell my manager, and cross my fingers and maybe she can slowly help me get over this fear. My biggest fear is that they will let me go. I eventually want to go to nursing school. Looking for advice.
