    All stressed out, Does it get better?

    hi nurse2b, I remember feeling that exact way and it will get better, but you just can't expect to get straight A's in nursing school it is too hard even if you put in hours of studying. Listen to your husband he is right you are putting too much pressure on yourself. you will be a good nurse if you get C's, B's or A's okay so try to relax and be happy with C's they are not that bad okay.!!!!!!

    hello i am a student nurse and i will be graduating soon, but today i had the worst day of clinicals i could of ever had. My pt kept me very busy and if something could of gone wrong it did. I started out d/c her NG and tha was easy, then i had to ge specimns from her foley then i had to change her foley from a 16 to a 18 and that of course did not go smoothly. I took her foley out and then put in her new bigger one and she scremed the whole time and she could not tolerate it so i took it out and put in a 16 yes the same size she had in originally. Then i ha to draw blood and that did not go smoothly either i have drawn blood one other time so i had to stick her two times not to mention the doctors were in there watching me too. A little nerve wracking. then my pt accidently pulled out her IV so i had to start a new one and i could not get it so my teacher had to. then i still had to chat her assessment and my instructor wanted everyone to be done by 1000 am and we got on the floor at 0800. well i did not gt done until 1115 and i just feel like i did everything wrong. do i want to be a nurse i really wanted to go in to L& D, but now i just don't know. thanks for listening who ever read this long message thanks,
