So, I never thought that I would be this student. The one who is dreading to go to clinical. This past week was tough ( skills lab). I feel so behind that I just don’t know how to handle all of my emotions. On top of feeling behind in clinical labs I am now anxious about going to my clinical site. I turned in my clinical documentation packet and I missed a lot! I didn’t get a very good grade at all, and that’s discouraging considering I thought I did OK. Well, then again I was just happy to have everything filled and turned in. Maybe it wasn’t of much quality. :-/
Last time I was at my clinical site I felt like I didn’t do much in terms of practicing my labs. I left thinking, “Next week I’m going to come in. Be assertive and take care of my patient and do as many skills as they let me.” Not feeling that way anymore.
I guess this is just a “low” day. I am working on my clinical paper work to try and get a head start so I can focus more on patient interaction and skills. I hope I get a better grade this time around.
Anyways, I’m thinking I may vlog about it because there is more to me feeling “discouraged,” “down,” or “behind.”
AH! This is all a part of nursing school! I have to remember that.
Hope everyone is enjoying the last few hours of their weekend.
