    Nurturing Confidence In Nursing Students

    I graduated nursing school last week with my BSN and I'm just waiting to take boards. I have to say that my big confidence problem is that experienced nurses don't want me to feel confident. They're offended if I say I know what I'm doing with any certain skill. Look, I realize I still have a ton to learn, but some nuses seem to feel as if when I say I feel confident placing a Foley, that I'm being a know-it-all or something. I sometimes feel as if I just can't say the right thing- either the nurse will think I'm being over-confident, or she'll think I'm not confident enough.
