I would say the most difficult part of nursing school is connecting all the dots. By this I mean, you learn so much that sometimes it may be difficult to put everything together to understand exactly why you’re doing something. This comes with time and experience, so don’t beat yourself up. We’ve all been there!
I felt that during my associates degree nursing program that the hardest part was the timed clinical performance nursing exams I had to take that were given by my nursing instructor on medical surgical units. I had to pass two of them to complete my nursing program. The exam involved being assigned a focused assessment, nursing tasks and then I was required to chart on paper on what I did with the patient and write a nursing diagnosis with interventions that applied to that patient. These exams were timed so you also had to complete everything in the allotted time. I found it stressful as a student but it was helpful to go through in the long run.
As a new nurse, I found it hard to watch patients get worse and pass away or be in a lot of pain from their condition.
