well, first let me say that you are experiencing what is called “nursing school blues”. this is a normal thing even as far as into your last semester. when you are ready to graduate you are going to think, “oh man, am i ready to do this on my own?!” listen, almost all of us have been there so you are in good company! : ) should you practice more…yep! should you study more…yup! is that going to make a difference…probably not! you know what is? 6 months-1yr as a nurse you are going to realize “wow! i can do this!” you will have good days and you will have some rough days. however, there is light at the end of the tunnel! : ) you will feel confident some day. i think for me i started to feel a little better when i was doing my capstone. i had a preceptor that i was working with, but they gave me a full patient load. i realized that i really can do this. the good thing about where you are it usually makes you safer, because you are afraid of doing something wrong. don’t ever lose that! remember, we need to keep our patients safe! good luck! there isn’t anything wrong with you just because of the way that you are feeling. i would actually think there is something wrong if you don’t feel that way from time to time.
