I'm thrilled because I won't have to dread clinical anymore. I hate being bored.
I'm also somewhat pleased because she thinks I'm good. From what I've overheard of her conversations with other students, she is a lot more critical than she is with me. I've spent the last year-plus feeling clueless and out of my element, and it is cool to feel like I'm finally getting my groove. I am much more focused on taking care of my patients than pleasing my instructor, and that seems to be working well for me. I've really missed feeling competent, like I felt when I was a reporter. It's nice to finally start feeling slightly competent again.
