I have come to realize that nursing school is no joke!! We should have PhD's after we graduate!! I love nursing and I have such a passion to help people get better. If I am unable to help someone get better, just putting a smile on their face brightens my day. I am in nursing school right now if you can't tell. It can be so stressful sometimes all I can do is cry. Clinical is very tough. I say that not because of the patients we have to take care of, but because of having the instructors right THERE watching our every move!!! Why is it so stressful with them looking over you, but when they aren't looking right over your shoulder you are calm as can be and can think clearly? Something as simple as whats the normal pulse rate gets asked to you, but you are so nervous that you can't even think of the answer!!! How silly!! That is something we have learned day one right? How do I get past all that and try to block them out? Am I going to make it out alive?!
