I’m afraid of blood. Can I become a Nurse?

I’m afraid of blood. Can I become a Nurse?

What if you are afraid of the bodily fluids or other aspects of the job of a Nurse? Could you still become a Nurse?

I believe you can. I speak from personal experience.

In my pre-Nursing life I had a genuine vasovagal response to everything about vomit and dry-heaving. Yet here I am a Nurse Practitioner going into my 12th year as a Nurse. A former Trauma certified bedside Nurse and now Nurse Practitioner working in a Trauma ICU.

It can be done. You can overcome this fear or ‘freak out’ of bodily fluid.

Remember, not every Nurse works at the bedside. You can work as a Nurse and not be exposed to those “fluids” (or at least minimize the exposure).

Do you know anyone that overcame this type of fear? How did they do it?!

Advice when preparing to enter NP school

Advice when preparing to enter NP school

 

The months leading up to the start of your advanced practice degree journey can be mind-boggling. All you want to do is be prepared. Like most Type-A personality Nurses… you want to get ahead of the game.

Here are 3 tips I can offer to help you prepare:

  1. Review your EBP
  2. Review A & P
  3. RELAX

Bonus tip: if you know of any previous students reach out to them for sage advice regarding the upcoming coursework.

But seriously. Relax. Enjoy the last little bit of freedom you have! (While you still have it) LOL

Sorry for calling, doctor…

Organik - Instagram

Advocating for your patient including calling providers for clarification. Maybe there was an order that was unclear. Maybe there was something that didn’t jive with their medication profile? Maybe you need to report the result of a diagnostic procedure? (as you can see this list is endless)

Sooner or later you as the Nurse will have to call the Provider (Physician, Nurse Practitioner, Physician Assistant, etc.). When you make that phone call….

DO NOT start the conversation with an apology.

Never apologize for doing your job. EVER.
