So I am currently in my second semester of nursing school. Prior to beginning, I had no previous healthcare experience (and I am naturally a very anxious person), so I was very timid coming into clinicals and I still struggle with this to this day. I don’t know why, I don’t know if it’s from a lack of confidence in myself or the thought that these patient’s lives are in my hands and if I do one thing wrong they could die and/or I could get sued and lose my job. I desperately would like some tips or guidance anyone can offer me, because I am starting a job as an ER tech soon, and I want to be able to feel more confident and not let my fear and anxiety hinder my performance. Also, some tips on what to expect/how to be good at that would be great too.
Literally anything helps! Thanks so much in advance!
