So this is my 3rd clinical day in the ICU for my preceptorship in my last semester of nursing school. Me and my preceptor were pulling meds for a patient and someone I misplaced a pill package for a PPI medication.
We looked and couldn’t find it. My preceptor told me not to worry because it wasn’t an opioid or benzo and went on to explain a story on how she took home a probiotic one time on accident and just threw it away.
Unfortunately, I can’t shake off this feeling of being a total dumb***. Is there anyone who has had similar experiences? Any tips or tricks?
On top of that, I just have made little mistakes that I shouldn’t be making such as putting down a flush without the cap on a non sterile surface or little things of that nature. Does that feeling of thinking you’re not gonna be a good nurse go away?
