Nursing Report

I suck as a nurse, and that's a fact. Since I've had three months of PRCP at TTSH, I expect myself to find my footing faster than others and do much better than the others, given the fact that I have been exposed to all these before.

But it seems that is not the case. I seem to be such an idiot and others are suffering as a result of my incompetence. There's always so many changes that I would miss out, so many things I did not follow-up on, so many things that I forgot to include in my report. There's so many things that I don't know how to do, I still don't know much about my patients.

But there's one area which I am very happy about: medications. I no longer feel scared of serving medications, which is probably one of the reasons I don't make that many medications errors anymore. Not making medication errors has given me confidence when serving medications, so I don't make that many mistakes. It's a positive cycle. I like that.

Well, about my incompetency, I guess I will just have to work harder. Since I don't have good memory, I should write down all the things that I have to do and follow-up on.

I have realised, quite long ago, that I am not someone who works well when under a lot of pressure. Give me too much pressure and I will go all haywire. So I should calm myself down and do my things peacefully.

Hopefully, I don't disappoint anyone again (including myself).
