Tough Time?

Students General Students


To any of you guys who were like me and HATED clinicals:o

Cheer up! I just graduated in Dec. Clincals were so awful.

And so many nurses would roll their eyes and say, "If you think that's bad, just wait til you work." I was scared to death!

Well, now I'm working in a busy hospital on an oncology floor. The nurses are so nice and treat me with respect (imagine!).

I LOVE my new job. It is so much better than clinicals in EVERY way. :)

There is hope. Hang in there. And don't believe all the negatives.

There are some good hospital jobs out there. :balloons: Nurscee

Now, thank you for this post, because I HATE clinicals with a passion. I always think, "If I dread clinicals this much - will I dread my JOB this much someday?" Thanks for giving me some hope!

Clinicals are NOTHING like real world nursing. I hated every minute of clinicals, but am enjoying being a nurse now. Hang in there, and remember how temporary it all is.

Just curious...what was it about clinicals that made it such a bad experience for you all?
