New nurse out of my depth!


Hi everyone!

I’ve just recently qualified and I work in a nursing home. I love my job and give it my absolute best. Anyway today whilst shopping, there was a man on the ground with people all around him, I went over and asked what had happened and could I help as I was a nurse? Suddenly this woman came over and said it’s ok I’m a nurse and I said, oh good me too, she replied, hmmm well I’m a bit more hands on than you! I felt so stupid and incompetent. I actually feel like the worst nurse ever as I wasn’t really sure what to do, I was just trying to get a grasp of what we already knew about the mans condition before I made a move. Any advice would be greatly appreciated. This has knocked my confidence big time!
Thank you!
