It happened. I had my oh **** what the hell am i doing here moment the other day! I was sitting in Acute Skills(quarter 2 of 7) and as the teacher was explaining why communication and critical thinking are so vital in the nursing profession..I got a deer in teh head lights look and my mind literally screamd at me"WTH are you doing here?! you cant do this! youll never learn to think like this! WHY ARE YOU HERE!" I spent hte rest of hte day literally in a daze, I couldnt tell you what I learned that day bc I have no idea. I was so out of it...I kept trucking through that week(this was probably 2 weeks ago). So flash forward to Thursday, a fellow classmate asked me a question(about why her answer was wrong on the test) and I told her, in no uncertain terms, what I thought. Right after I said it, the teacher said the same thing! And again, i got an oh **** moment. this time, my brain screamed"YOU CAN DO IT! You are officially a critical thinker and are going to be a great nurse!" Just thought Id share my happy moment!
