It is very true! I have no option to quit + I love nursing with all my heart. However, there are days when I feel I am making full of myself. I graduated with high grades, got hired off my preceptorship, received thanks from patients and recognition from co-workers and bossed, but then I get a day like today and I just want to roll in a ball and die. I feel so incompetent, so stupid and so defeated today. I know I will pick myself up tomorrow and go again, but it is so hard to do. I love that we nurses constantly learning, but I also feel that doctors loosing trust in a nurse when she makes even smallest mistakes. What I have done today is listened to a nurses report to me and called the doctor about the issue, the information was not true, she probably missed up the pt's in her head. I end up looking like a fool and a liar and idiot. Especially because the doc hand up on me after correcting me for 5 minutes.
