So I am a nursing student studying Childrens's Pre-Registration Nursing, I have always wanted to be a nurse from since i can remember. I love helping people, I love children and I love the job (when I understand) So im a third year, im due to graduate in July 2016, exciting times, I have waited for this moment since secondary school.. everything mapped out exactly as planned. Well since starting my course in 2013 i have continusly struggled like really badly, I have really had to work hard and things just dont come natural to me. Then I was tested for dyslexia and dyscalculia and It was shown that i do have them both which explains some of the reasons i am struggling so badly. So i have carried on and now i have had two really bad mentors that have put me down in front of parents and told me how bad my maths is and that i really need to sort it out and its scary to think that i will be a staff nurse next year for these reasons. I let them know of my difficulties and i explained that i can do the sums i just need to be able to write them down, well she thinks that is unexceptable, she as put me down loads. I finally couldnt take it after 3 years of bad mentors. I Quit my course and i am due to return in december. I know i am not ready to be a staff nurse but i put my everything into it and still dont seem to be getting any better at anything i do. My confidence is at an all time low, i struggle practically and academically but I love the patients and they all say how fabulous i am and how kind of a nurse i will be. But How can i improve myself for December. Im struggling, I feel like im always asking if there is anything i can do, im cleaning, tidying talking to parents. doing observations, but as a third year student i feel i should be more involved, HOW DO I DO THIS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I need help.. Anyone?? Or do I stop now??
