Resilience in Nursing School

As I reflect on my experience in nursing school through the pandemic, I think about the struggles I had to face with the limited interactions with my professors and peers and online learning. What got me through the pandemic was knowing that my peers and I are in the same position and going through this change together. Although it was a struggle to make new friends or interact with my professors, utilizing office hours and getting to know my peers in group settings was very supportive for me. I also had to maintain confidence in my abilities in what I learned from nursing school into clinical practice in order to open myself up to learning even more. These strategies will benefit me as a nurse

Hi Lynnie:

Thanks for joining our conversation. It sounds like you're learned something that many nurses say has gotten them through the pandemic: how to lean on the other members of their team.

Did you figure that out on your own? Is there some way your nursing instructors helped with that? Or something more you'd like to see them do, or something that should be added to the curriculum that would help you and your fellow students?

Lynnie - how was your first hand experience in the clinical setting impacted? What challenges do you think you will have as a new to practice nurse, and how will you overcome them?
