I heard a joke one time, "How can you tell a Nurse from a respiratory therapist? Stand them both in stool up to their chests and throw sputum at them. The one who ducks is the nurse." We all learn in our Nursing programs how to do trach care. Ducking at the right time, however, is a self-taught response. Can you relate? Has this happened to you?
Nursing students have so many challenges to handle. You can get so caught up in deadlines, classes, studying, etc that you wonder if you will survive. When something good happens, it almost seems overwhelmingly impossible.
Tell us how you felt when you started seeing that you are making progress in becoming a nurse.
A strong positive message can move mountains. What do you do to remind yourself to never give up? Is there someone in your life that's always there to pick you up? I believe that inspirational/motivational quotes are a great picker-upper... especially if read at the right time. Share your stories...
