HELPING OTHERS TO LIVE THEIR DREAM
This page is about sharing and supporting all the emotions experienced in ~being a nurse.
Let’s Blog! Do you recall the first time you dreamed of becoming a professional nurse? Did you know you would always go into nursing, or was it because you seen your dear grandmother sick in the hospital which made you take on the profession? How about the first time you successfully started an IV on a real patient? What about the time you lost your first patient?
As the nurse’s role continues to take on even more responsibility today, it becomes important for clinical educators, to help future professionals (and each other) discuss the truly personal experience of what one experiences in being a nurse. Which at times can be highly stressful for the one wearing the uniform, as we know is for the client. The highs to can be as emotional as the bitter-sweet lows. By allowing clinical learners to ventilate and encourage the sharing of such experiences, students will become more confident, develop a professional caring attitude, and become better in applying their coping skills.
