The first time for anything always makes one a bit nervous, after the first week am just fine. Just thinking that I have to do something for the very first time makes me nervous. Aftrer a few days you will blend in just fine. So please stay upbeat! Have lots of fun with your studies.

Congratulations on starting your duties as a student nurse! It takes a special person to be a nurse. Here are at least 3 things a nurse should remember while caring for patients 1. Remember to always be friendly and respectful. Treat a patient the way you would like to be treated. 2. You don't always have to talk loud. I don't know why, but for some reason it seems that nurses think that EVERYONE is deaf. 3. Please listen to your patient. One time, when I was in the hospital after having my gall bladder removed, the nurse's aide was going to run and get some help when my blood pressure was very low very first thing in the morning. I said, "Wait a minute. I JUST woke up and let me sit up here for a minute and you can take my blood pressure again." She waited, took it again, and my blood pressure was normal!

Just be yourself always and presence of mind is a very important factor to remember. I have lots of experience when I was a student nurse but I have learned something from it. Good luck on your duty and remember to smile to your patients! Take care!

I am always interested in nursing stories as I used to be a nurses aid myself. You will meet and care for a variety of people. You will find youself being attached to some of your patients which is only normal. but you will go home at the end of the day knowing you are doing something worthwhile with your time and helping others. You will feel fulfilled.
