Trust in God ...

I am wracked with anxiety over nursing school. I made my clinical instructor mad and now my life is beyond stressful. I can barely stand my current level of stress in  this situation! I am so overwhelmed! I just want to graduate and become a good nurse. I am over this nursing program and the poor quality of education I have been subjected to for almost 2 years. The first two quarters of the program was great, hard work but very educational. The 3rd quarter had a yin & yang feel with theory being hellish and clinicals being so much fun. When we got to 4th quarter we thought that it couldn’t get any worse than this (clinicals were still fun) with the low quality of non-leaning that was going on but … holy horse poopy … hold the phone …. 5th quarter has blown it all out of the park. AHHHHHHH, I just want to get this program over with!

Mental Health

It takes a special nurse to work in most specialty fields. I believe the same is true in mental health nursing. I have my clinicals for a few days at Western State Mental Hospital this quarter and it has been interesting. It is truly a complicated and difficult thing when someone is mentally ill.

I am sooooo over nursing school. This quarter feels like a total waste of time! I am looking forward to my preceptorship next quarter. I am requesting ICU, ER or PICU. All emergent care settings ... floor nursing is sheer torture to me so I hope I get some sort of emergency care.
