Can you advise this student nurse?
“I know we are a bit bottom-heavy in terms of the mix of skill levels we have, so we really need student nurses to move up the ranks as quickly as possible.
“But I feel like I’m being pushed into progressing too soon and don’t feel like I’m ready to take on the new responsibilities that are being handed to me. I’m really nervous about taking on more before I feel ready, but I also don’t want to disappoint anyone.
“If the higher-ups feel like I am ready, shouldn’t I just trust them?
“I’m just worried about not being ready for what’s laid out in front of me and want to make sure I’m prepared. But then again, I want to do my bit and help out in any way that I can, and I certainly don’t want to upset or disappoint anyone who thinks that I am ready. Any advice on what to do?”
