Strong Stomaches

Posted

I have heard many stories about aspiring nursing students who have wonderful GPAs but reach clinical and are completely unable to handle the blood and gore. I do not have the strongest stomach but it is not that weak! I was just wondering what is the most gruesome thing you have seen in clinical? I want to be prepared and not have to fear passing out or vomiting.

I can deal with necrotic tissue, pseudomonas, and C. diff diarrhea.

It's the "small things" that get me every time.

Still haven't found a defense for the poop- and booger-eaters.

It would have been bad enough stopping at booger. Adding eaters to it, just brings it to a whole new level of gross :lol2:
