I am about to graduate from a BSN program in Dec. and am a much older student with three kids, so I have not worked during school. My concern is that probably 75% of my class has worked as a tech for much of school with jobs already lined up where they work, and I am starting to feel really inadequate and behind. Just listening to them talk and realizing the many skills they have acquired as a tech makes me feel like my skills are few and far between and i'm wondering if anyone is going to want to hire me. If I were hiring, I would prefer someone with experience, but with three kids it has been all I could do to get through this stressful experience. I still get nervous just taking vital signs. I could really use some insight from someone on the other side as to where I stand realistically. I tend to lack confidence and I really feel it is starting to show in my rotations, but I am truly a nice person and believe I could be a good nurse with a patient teacher. I am doing my leadership rotation and am basically still just observing, which is also making me stressed because I fear i'm not doing enough.
