I'm knew to allnurses. I am a psychiatric nursing intern not sure how the American nursing program works but in Europe its a four year degree. I am currently in the first 8 week placement of my internship with another three to go. I am doing miserably, keep making mistakes, errors of judgement, I get pulled up on everything. Dreading going in today as my nursing note yesterday was rushed and did not accurately describe how the situation really was, and things got blown out of proportion. I guess I just joined to feel less alone and hope to hear shared experiences that don't make me feel so incompetent.
