A First As Student Nurse Blogs Go

If you take a look at the student nurses listed in the sidebar (and I suggest you do). Then all of these lovely people are smart, well adjusted, and get good grades. I on the other hand... fail stuff, mess it up and generally cause havoc where ever I go. Makes for interesting blog posts at least.
So this should come as no surprise....
I've stuffed up my final placement. My fault not theirs. Should really have seen it coming to be honest. So I'm not there yet. Sadly.
I'm getting 6 weeks somewhere else to see if I can pull it back (and maybe put a cap on that problem I have with authority). It'll work out fine. The whole thing wasn't right from the beginning so somewhere new has to be better.
I'll tell you guys when I find out where I going. I put in a vote for acute / critical / coronary care / type places. Don't know if I'll get that but it won't be going back to where I was.

The havoc part sounds something like me...although I cause it by arguing with cardiologists over pain medication on my very first day. ~grins~ just because HE forgot to check to see if the patient was lucid...

They never told us becoming RNs was easy!!

Telling us it was easy would be false advertising!
Ah havoc causing so very entertaining!

Nightmare! Although if there were problems that bad then your mentor should really have been raising the issue before now...anyway, good luck with getting a decent one next, and try and see it as some valuable extra clinical experience before you get all the horrible responsibility! x

Ah well they did.... But I thought I was getting better I honestly did.
Ah sod it. Still don't really want the responsibility!
