Would you rather……Work every day for a year or redo all of nursing school?
Work every day for a year!
There is no way I would survive nursing school again. I think my opinion of nursing care plans would come to light, since I’m more confident now than I was back then, and I’m pretty sure the instructors wouldn’t like what I had to say. Besides, working every day for a year would be terrible, but the OT collected would almost make up for it.
Now that I am teaching nursing school, I would work for a year over repeating nursing school over again! Knowing what I know now, I don’t have the patience for care plans, drug cards or doing everything “in theory” and “not in the real world”. I just finished fundamentals with my students and in showing the video of bed baths, I had to let them know, you will not have 10 towels, 4 bath blankets and unlimited time to get this task done. But as baby nurss, they have to start slow.
