Remember too, that hospital nursing is only one option out there. There are so many other places to practice. You might love home nursing, transitional nursing, public health, wound care, surgery, the list is nearly endless. Right now you are a student and can't do a whole lot. But look for the things you can do. In nursing school I had a patient who had been hospitalized for weeks, one arm was taped to her side, and she was miserable. I got the ok from my nurse to do a bed bath. Shampooed her hair-heated shampoo caps can be amazing! Gave her a bedbath, massaged her feet and hands with lotion, changed her bedding and gown and she was in years with gratitude. Turned out she was a 90+ year old retired NP/PHN. Gave me one of my most treasured compliments to this day/ told me I was an old-school nurse who knew how how to do what really matters for patient care.
Look for opportunities to make patients happier, take care of grieving families, make people smile. These are skills that they don't tell you about in NCLEX prep, but that I personally use every day in my practice. Those moments make my day.
