I had an amazing experience last month.   It was one of those moments when you are filled with thousands of emotions ranging from happiness to sadness all at the same time.  Have you ever felt that before?

The past year has been incredibly busy for my family and I for many reasons, and this is something that I haven’t shared publicly, but in the last year my grandma and grandpa (on my mom’s side) both passed away almost exactly a year apart from each other, one from a stroke and the other from pneumonia complicated by dementia.

This has been hard for the entire family, my mom especially (obviously).

But I want to rewind the clock a bit to my first semester in nursing school, and then we will come back to last month.

My First Semester of Nursing School

During my first semester of nursing school one of my grandpa on my dads side passed away rather quickly.  That was in 2011.  I’ve talked many times about how difficult that first semester of nursing school was here and here.

Long story short, my wife was 7 months pregnant.  We had just moved to Illinois from Texas.  We had just pulled out $40,000 in student loans.

My parents were kind enough to pay for a ticket out to the funeral in Arizona.  I went to funeral, and it changed everything for me!

I had a sort of epiphany. I realized that in those last minutes of my grandpas life nurses were caring for him.  I wanted to feel and know that they were caring for him as deeply as I would.

I realized that I was very literally caring for someones grandpa, mom, daughter . . . loved one.  I vowed to myself to care more deeply for each and every patient.

This Last Year

So over the course of the last year, my grandma passed away (stroke) and just 12 months later, my grandpa (pneumonia).  I worked as a NEURO ICU nurse before doing NRSNG full-time so during the final moments of my grandmas life I was fielding questions and educating family on the process.  She passed away in 2016.

They lived out in Arizona, and I am back in Texas.  So again, we were relying on amazing nurses to love and care for my grandparents.

My grandpa began to get more and more sick (with both dementia and other complications). He finally became most bed ridden and developed pneumonia in April 2017.  On grandpas last night, two of my uncles were at the bedside with him.  We got the text at 1am that he had passed away.

My wife and I, with our children flew out to Arizona for the funeral.  After the funeral we had a small lunch with family. My uncle came up to me in tears and told me about the last night with my grandpa in the hospital.

He said the nurse that was taking care of my grandpas was amazing and so caring.  Then he shared this story with me:

During the night he mentioned to the nurse that his nephew (me) was also a nurse.

 

He said, “He has a website for nurses called NRSNG.com.”

 

The stopped what she was doing and said, “I love NRSNG without NRSNG I would have never made it through nursing school.”

In that moment, I felt like the vow I made to myself back in 2011 to care deeper for my patients had come full circle.

You never know who you will touch as a nurse.

We love each of you and we take the responsibility of helping you along in your journey VERY seriously.  Thank you for being a part of the NRSNG Family.  Some day, it is very likely that ONE of you will care for me, my wife, or one of my children.  Thank you in advance!you never know who you will touch as a nurse

Inside that course I dive into 11 test taking strategies unique to the nursing school experience, but in this video I wanted to cover three tips for how to answer select all that apply questions.

What Are SATA Questions

Before we dive too much into the strategy, let’s talk about WHAT they are.

The NCSBN (the company that writes the NCLEX) refers to SATA questions as “Multiple Response Items”.  Essentially, these are any test question where you are required to select every correct answer from a list of 5 or 6 possible answer options.

They are structured like any regular item (question) except that at the end of the question you will see “Select all that apply” at the end.

We’ve discussed the general anatomy of NCLEX questions previously here.

Common SATA Questions

There are a few things that many students ask regarding select all that apply questions:

  • How many correct answers can there be?
  • Do I get partial credit?

How Many Correct Answers Can There Be?

This is an often debated question in nursing schools.  How many correct answers can SATA questions have?  Can there only be one correct option?  Can all the answer options be correct?

To answer this question, we went directly to the source (HERE) to see what they had to say about it.  Here’s what we found:

Multiple-response items that require a candidate to select two or more responses.

From this response, it seems pretty clear that a SATA question will require AT LEAST two correct answers.  If you only find one . . . keep digging.  The above quote comes directly from their website and references the most up to date NCLEX information as of 2017.

Here are a couple of other quotes found on NCSBN and learningext.com.

I think the only safe assumption for SATA or “select-all-that-apply” (also called “multiple response”) questions is that more than one response is correct.

and . .

Multiple response items are described as having five or six options with a minimum of two correct (key) options.  Items contain the statement “Select all that apply.” At this time, NCSBN requires the candidate to utilize their comprehensive knowledge to determine the appropriate amount of applicable maximum correct answers to each item.  In short, we disclose how many, at a minimum can be correct; however, we do not disclose how many at a maximum may/may not be correct.

While the wording in the last quote is a bit dated and that quote is only found on the learningext website and not the NCSBN any longer, the first quote essentially state the same information.

Do I Get Partial Credit?

Short answer: nope

Long answer: . . . nope

With SATA questions it’s all or none.  If you get all but one of the correct answers, you still are marked wrong for the entire question.

SATA Success Pyramid

SATA questions are generally seen as more difficult questions and as such it can actually been seen as a good thing if you start seeing a lot of them.  Learning how to successfully answer them will help tremendously in your nursing education.

the sata success pyramid by nrsng

To help in answering these questions, I’ve developed a three step process.

How to Answer Select All That Apply (SATA) Questions:

  1. Cover All Options
  2. Evaluate Each Option Individually
  3. Turn Each Answer Into a T/F Statement

By following these three steps, in order, you will greatly improve your chances of getting these difficult questions correct.

When you cover all the options you eliminate the chances you will become biased in your evaluation of answer options. By evaluating each option individually you force yourself to NOT look for correlations between options.  When you turn each option into a true/false statement, you simplify the options and improve your chances.

Conclusion

This post and video are a brief summary of how to answer these difficult questions.  Inside the NRSNG Academy and the Test Taking Course I go into great depth on exactly how to conquer nursing exams . . . we’ve also got thousands of NCLEX style questions (including SATA).

I want to invite you to get started with the NRSNG Academy.

Can You Top These Nurses Week Gifts….

We asked some of our nursing friends on Reddit for examples of the absolute worst nurses week gifts they ever received (we got over 120 responses. . . all terrible).  The results shocked even us!

We totally expected the standard coffee cup (with the hospital name on it), cheap pen (with the hospital name on it), water-bottle (with the hospital name on it)….you get our point.  But these gifts really took the cake – hey cake would have been nice compared to some of these!  If you are looking for a bigger list of gifts for nurses read this.
We know that the hospital admin mean well during nurses week…but how much thought it really going into some of these gifts?  We mean seriously…some of these are BAD!

 

1.  donuts

 

I’m a nurse in the Air Force. The last two months they have been selling us donuts and “highly recommending”(short for its not mandatory but may impact the way leadership influences your career) that we donate our time or unneeded items for a garage sale in order to raise funds for nurses week. They also put out a collection jar at the nurses station so we could donate our change to support nurses week. I’m yet to see what all our efforts will earn us this year, but last year it was a cheap plastic water bottle.

 

During the donut fundraiser, I made a comment with leadership present about how ridiculous it was that they were asking us to buy a dozen donuts for $10 in order to fund buying us a stupid gift that nobody wanted. Everyone there turned and looked at me like I’d just shut off my patient’s ventilator. – CBRdream21

 

2.  deserveit

Apparently the manager of the med-surg department at my hospital sent out a email that said “You guys do such a good job. Why don’t you throw yourselves a nice potluck. You deserve it.”- Rawrzimon

 

3.  timeoff

I’m night shift. This year, they’re having an ‘ice cream social’. At NOON. In order to participate, we have to be present. Thank you, but no… -nurseracht

 

4.  planner

Non-nurse, I am an RT.

For Respiratory Care week years ago, our manager got the department planners, you know with the dates on them. Good right? If you didn’t know, Respiratory Care week is held on October. -ivan927

 

5.  winner

Our hospital had a drawing and those 10 nurses won something for nurses week, nothing for anyone else. I won, and won a cheese tray. With the name of my hospital alllllll over the cheese tray. Thanks. Can’t wait to use this at parties.- Palindromeomg

 

6.  lunchbox

Well, it’s not the worst gift, but I love when they give out lunch bags. Then the break room fridge is full of the exact. same. lunchbox. – sweetbldnjesus

 

7.  ew

A pair of underwear from the dollar store. Yes, you read that right. It was supposed to be funny……… dies a little inside – ettell

 

8.  cookie

We used to get a free car wash, which was actually really nice. The new administration nixed that last year, and we got a total of 6 stale sugar cookies to share amongst our whole unit. Gee, thanks.- ThePantsWhisperer

 

9.  fired

My favorite was a “thank you” card from the higher ups and an FYI that they’d be laying off nurses.

-emerald_Shanty

 

10.  flair

Flair. We got flair. These cheap buttons the size of a quarter with inspirational messages like “team player” and “great job” that we were supposed to wear.- OvertimeRN

 

11.  diabetus

My diabetic lactose intolerant coworker got ice cream. -mrwhibbley

 

12.  mine

My friends back at my old hospital just told me they each got ONE chocolate covered strawberry.- noxRN

 

13.  guy

I, (a guy), got a nice basket of hand lotion and girly sprays. I ask what I was supposed to do with that. I was told I could give it to my wife. – TomTheNurse

 

Makeup tote bag…I’m male. – SabaBoBaba

 

14.  fire

Last year we got this all-in-one charger thing. Like for your phone and whatever else. Had like 6 extensions on it. Anyways, we get an e-mail like two weeks later that we have to give them back because they’re been catching on fire (!!!!). Don’t remember what they replaced it with. Thinking it was a beach towel. With the name of the hospital written across… – olive2bone

 

15.  forget

One year, after Nurse’s week when everyone got something but me, management said they didn’t think I wanted the gift so they didn’t give me one. – firemanxxxphoto

 

16.  gross

It wasn’t for Nurse’s Week, but for an orientation class my hospital gave out lunchboxes. Mine was dirty inside, complete with a baggie that had obviously previously held some sort of snack. – gin_and_uterotonic

 

17.  mint

Couple years back we each got little gift bags containing a broken pen, a pack of wintergreen life savers, and a little paper tag that said “Thank you for your commit-MINT.” Ha ha. Get it? – auraseer

 

18.  broke

They asked us to consider donating to the hospital 😐 – katherine_rf

 

19.  clown

Last year they bought us red foam clown noses lmao. – PRNmeds

 

20.   laugh

I got a postcard telling me I can drive to their main office (2 hours away) to receive my special Nurse’s Week gift!!!!! I don’t know what the special gift is, but I doubt it’s worth the time and gas. – courtnutty

 

21.  soup

It was a weeklong event! We got a cheap plastic ladle with the company logo, measuring spoons with logo… Why? Because we are all ingredients to the soup that makes success!

The activity director handed them out as prizes to the residents. Management was not pleased. – kitty_r

 

22.  dollar

Worse than nothing. We were “given” a dollar, which was “donated” to a hospital charity. Major university hospital. – vasharpshooter

Conclusion

We know they try, but many of these missed the mark big time!

Got a nurses week gift that you think can top this list….comment below or on social media.  We would love to hear about them.

Happy Nurses Week from NRSNG!

I wanted to share a message of intellectual humility and the need to create an environment of inclusion and collaboration within nursing education.

What I soon found however, was that this message resonated with nursing students around the globe.  In this episode I share a bit of the “back story” to NRSNG and our vision for a nursing education environment that is STUDENT and PATIENT focused rather than professor and administrator focused.

TIMELINE:

  • 2008: accepted to nursing school the first time
  • 2010: accepted the second time
  • 2011: started nursing school, son born, surgeries
  • 2012: withdrew, found out wife was prego
  • 2013: graduated with $0 in the bank and $65,000 in loans, first job in Neuro ICU
  • 2014: started NRSNG
  • 2015: devoted 100% of time to NRSNG
  • 2017: today

As we move forward we will continue to push for an environment of inclusion, collaboration, humility, and LOVE for nursing.

Nursing Education Needs to Change!

There is a major flaw with humans . . . we are wholly susceptible to cognitive biases. What are cognitive biases?

Tendencies to think in certain ways that can lead to systematic deviations from a standard of rationality or good judgment.

There are literally hundreds of different “kinds” of cognitive biases, but I want to discuss just one and how it pertains to the glaring reality that nursing education has to change!

Types of Cognitive Biases – Source: By Jm3 – Own work, CC BY-SA 4.0

 

What is Confirmation Bias?

The specific cognitive bias that I want to focus on is Confirmation Bias.  I’m sure that you’ve heard of it before, and no doubt experienced it at one time or another. The following definition comes from Psychology Today:

Confirmation bias occurs from the direct influence of desire on beliefs. When people would like a certain idea/concept to be true, they end up believing it to be true. They are motivated by wishful thinking. This error leads the individual to stop gathering information when the evidence gathered so far confirms the views (prejudices) one would like to be true.

 

. . . [W]e embrace information that confirms that view while ignoring, or rejecting, information that casts doubt on it. Confirmation bias suggests that we don’t perceive circumstances objectively. We pick out those bits of data that make us feel good because they confirm our prejudices. Thus, we may become prisoners of our assumptions.

In essence, once we have fallen into confirmation bias, there is no amount of evidence that will allow us to see the truth.

Confirmation Bias in Nursing Education

Becoming a nurse educator is a demanding task.  Generally, the nurse educator has worked several (3-5 at a minimum) years on the floor as a nurse, after which, they have obtained an MSN (Masters of Science in Nursing) degree with a focus in Education.  This education usually comes with additional student debt.

Following all these years of education and experience the new nurse educator begins teaching nursing students.  They join the ranks of “Nursing Educators“, tasked with educating a new generation of nurses.

BUT . . . 

There are several problems facing nursing education right now and I fear SOME nurse educators, administrators, and colleges are turning a blind eye to the problem due to confirmation bias . . . (yes, I get it . . . this is gonna piss a lot of people off).

According to an AACN publication:

  • The average age of nursing faculty was 56 years.
  • The average age of retirement from nursing education was 62.5 years.
  • There was a 12% shortfall in the number of available educators.
  • 56.5% of nursing schools said they are unable to find “qualified applicants”.

The NLN found that:

  • 42% of full-time and 39% of part-time Nursing Professors were >61 years old.
  • There were 1,072 nursing faculty vacancies.
  • 83% of nursing programs were seeking to hire new faculty.

In addition to all the above, the NLN also found that:

  • in BSN programs, only 18% of students were over 30.

What’s the Problem?

When we become a part of a group, especially a group that is so underfunded and understaffed (like Nurse Educators) it becomes very easy to defend every action and every individual.

(In the past, I have mentioned several things that I feel need to change in nursing education.  You can read about that here, here, and here.)

This is flawed however, because doing so denies the issues and neglects the need for change.  Rather than keeping an open mind about how to improve, the moment we try to protect or defend an entire industry, we enter into confirmation bias and inhibit our ability to objectively see the need for change.

I know, without a doubt, that whenever I mention the need for change in nursing education we will get an email or two from a professor or administrator ranting up and down saying . . . (my answers below each one).

  • “How dare you say there are flaws in nursing education!”
    • It is completely asinine to assume that there are NO flaws in ANY industry, company, or individual.  Hell yes there are flaws in nursing education . . . you know what?  There are flaws with NRSNG and with Jon Haws too.  None of us are perfect.  It’s time to be a bit more humble about what needs to change.
  • “You are everything that is wrong with nursing!”
    • Ummm . . . if pointing out areas of improvement and then creating those lifelines for nursing students after the educators they have relied on have failed them is “what’s wrong” with nursing . . .then we have much bigger problems.
  • “If students weren’t so lazy.”
    • No doubt, there are some lazy students out there.  However, all 300,000+ nursing students are not lazy just like all nursing educators are not “bad”.   Lazy students do not preclude the educator from educating.   Just as poor educators do not preclude the student from graduating.
  • “We don’t know the professors side of your story.  I’m sure you were in the wrong.”
    • I state exactly what I did wrong on this post.  Being will to openly share my failure shouldn’t grant you the right to attack my vulnerability and excuse poor education.
  • “Nursing school was hard for me, so it needs to be hard for other students . . . it’s the school of hard knocks.” (p.s. this one pisses me off more than any other)
    • Is this a joke?  Like seriously, is this a joke?  It’s your freaking job to educate.  I would NEVER wish on anyone to work on a floor where this mentality was adopted.  Imagine working with nurses who think it’s okay for other nurses  to struggle just because they’ve had some hard shifts.  Like . . . is this a joke.  If you see a co-worker struggling you just turn your head and let them sink rather than throw them a lifeline.  Get over yourself.
  • “We will NEVER share your material with our students.”
    • Thanks.  You just proved my point that nursing education needs to change!  How juvenile it is to deny your students of helpful materials just because your feelings got hurt.  The funniest thing about this email is that they are emailing us AFTER finding AND using our materials.  Then, they get their feelings hurt and refuse to distribute anything NRSNG to their students.  Dude!  You just proved the point. Some administrators have gone as far as to BAN myself (Jon) from physically coming on their campus.  Come on!  It’s time to grow up, recognize the flaws, and provide your students with anything that will help them.
  • “You are a bad example of negativity in nursing.”
    • I take offense to this.  Our podcast has 800+ episodes covering an enormous amount of material on positivity.  Our blog has 800+ posts, our YouTube channel has 400+ videos, our Instagram account has 700+ posts . . . 99% of this material is positive to nursing and nursing education.  If I point out one flaw or state that “nursing education needs to change” and you see that a “negativity in nursing”, I fear we are so deep into confirmation bias  . . .

Protecting Our Own

As we become part of a group we take pride in being a part of that group.  We start defending our group of people (career, team, etc) to the point that we fail to see the flaws.

If you can’t see the flaws you become unable to see a need for improvement.  You begin to defend your group regardless of what they do.

Here’s an example . . . at the risk of sounding political.  If you consider the “Blue Lives Matter” movement in response to “Black Lives Matter” movement, what we saw were two deeply entrenched groups unwilling to see a flaw with their own movement or group. In EACH of the cases, one side (or both) made mistakes, but the two competing groups had become so bias that they were unable to see any flaw in their own side. To say that no police officer ever made a mistake or acted in prejudice is just crazy.  You simply can’t defend an entire group or career field like that.

That is really dangerous. I would never state that every nurse is perfect, without flaw, or even caring.  Some nurses are just bad nurses.  There are some that I would prefer not to work with.  There are some who I think are unsafe nurses and should not be working in the field. There are 3.1 million nurses in the US . . . we’re not all perfect (gasp!).

My fear is that some in nursing education have adopted this sentiment, circled around each other, buried their head in the sand, and are now attacking even the slightest mention that MAYBE . . . just MAYBE they can improve.   Instead they are so focused on protecting their own that they are unable to see the need for change in nursing education.

In a beautifully formatted paper discussing nursing school attrition rates, written by a top nursing education company to nursing educators they outlined WHY they think nursing students fail out. Here’s what they said:

  • Inability to cope with stress
  • Preparation
  • Integration into the program

Notice anything about that list?  Not once did they mention things like:

  • Staff development and training
  • Teaching methods
  • Tutoring
  • Counseling services

Rather than pointing out those things that the school can do to improve a students chances for success, they put the blame entirely on the student.  This is wrong.  From my experience and from talking with hundreds of thousands of nursing students around the globe, I’ve found that fixing attrition rates and helping students depends on the second list much more.

NRSNG – Going Out of Business

NRSNG would be out of business if nursing schools were doing what they are supposed to be doing without any problems.  If students were being taught, supported, and encouraged as they should be . . . . we’d be out on the streets.

That would be a GREAT thing!  I would love it if nursing students were being taught as they should.  I would be ecstatic if NRSNG had to close it’s “doors” because nursing schools were doing their job.

BUT THAT’S NOT HAPPENING!

Instead we are growing exponentially.  Students are LOVING us.  NRSNG is becoming grass roots.  Students love that not only are we calling to light what needs to change, but we are CREATING that change.  Sadly, rather then being a part of the change, some professors are getting their feelings hurt, deepening their confirmation bias, refusing to see the need to evaluate themselves and deepening the void between them and their students.

As of March 2017:

  • 3,100,000 podcast downloads
  • 200,000 social media followers
  • 160,000 blog subscribers
  • 5,397,000 website page views

Our customer service department has had to grow faster than any other part of NRSNG.  We get literally HUNDREDS of emails a day from students all around the world telling us that we saved their education.

 

 

Now, at the same time we’ll get maybe ONE email a MONTH from a professor all upset telling us how horrible we are.  I try (nicely) to help them see that maybe it’s time to reevaluate the way we teach nursing students.

My Story

What I’ve done with NRSNG from the very beginning was try to share my story.  I didn’t start with a vendetta on all nursing schools (believe it or not I have a tremendous respect for nursing educators). But here’s what happened . . . my story resonated. I realized very quickly that I wasn’t the only one who struggled, pointlessly, through nursing school.

I respect that nursing education is difficult. I mean learning about how to care for a human in their most desperate time is tough . . . BUT . . . the entire process has become over complicated and turned into an US vs THEM with professors. Calling that out and trying to create a lifeline for students should not turn into a battle.  Rather, educators (some) need to attempt to peel themselves away form the confirmation bias and see that  . . . .

“wow!  These poor kids really are struggling.  I mean, yeah, MedSurg is hard, but should my students be struggling THIS much?”

Nursing Education Has to Change

Mainstream nursing education is NOT working.  We are rushing kids through school and leaving a trail of depression, broken dreams, and beat up students in the wake.

To those schools, administrators, and educators who are searching (humbly) for ways to improve the system, THANK YOU!

We (as educators) must do a better job.  We must confront out biases and improve our systems.  We must stay current.  And ABOVE ALL, we must realize that nursing students are people.  We need more nurses (who give a damn).  Stop burning students out.  As educators, it’s our job to EDUCATE.  Some students will need the extra boost, motivation, hand holding . . . not everyone learns the same.

Did you know Nursing is considered one of the most difficult undergraduate degrees (up there with Engineering and Physics)?

 

Add to this the stress of communicating with faculty and professors, it can seem unbearable.  In today’s episode, I share with you a few tips on opening the line of communication with nursing school professors.

 

 Meet Your Hardest Professor Face to Face on their TURF

Every nursing program has one . . . the professor who seems to think their entire goal in life is to fail every student.

They are tired of students, they want to prove how smart they are, they think you have no idea what it means to think analytically.

Use this to your advantage . . . Most students will hate this professor so much that they will avoid them like the plague.

That’s great!

That means that their office hours will be wide open for you to meet with them.

These teachers are usually the toughest graders and teach the most important courses (Adult Med Surg, Pharm).  So you really need to ACE their course.

Once you get an exam back from this teacher and realize that the correct answer isn’t the MOST correct answer on nearly every option ; ) . . . every other student will throw their hand in the air trying to argue for 1 extra point.

This might get you an extra point on this exam but it doesn’t make a difference in the grand scheme.

Just sit back and let every other student grade grub

. . . once class is over walk right up to the teacher and make an appointment to meet in her office to talk about your performance in the course.

When you meet with them bring your exam with you . . .

Here’s what you say:

“I feel like I studied really hard for this test, I read all the assigned reading (because you did), I took the practice tests, I felt like I understood the material in class . . . but my grade on this test has me a bit discouraged . . . I’ve always been a good student . . . what can I do to better prepare for your exams.”

That’s it . . .

You proved to her that you have some balls and courage to approach her personally, you showed that you get the material or at least attempted to understand it, then you put the ball in their court by saying . . . what should I be doing . . . FROM HER PERSPECTIVE to better prepare.

This method works wonders . . .

  • It shows them that you give a crap!
  • You aren’t arguing with them like every other nursing student in the history of the world!
  • It allows to step inside their mind and understand how they write their tests!
  • The professor WILL give you tips for passing their tests!

Remember . . . you will need references from your teachers . . . being friends with the tough ones is a HUGE advantage.

Relationships . . .

Nursing is all about relationships and mutual respect.

I followed this method with my toughest professors and to this day . . . years after graduation . . . I am still in contact with those same professors that many other students couldn’t stand.

Conclusion:

You CAN do this!  Nursing is HARD . . . nursing school is IMPOSSIBLE if you don’t learn how to develop a system that works!

You can do amazingly well . . . and amaze yourself with what you are capable of . . . trust me . . . I did!

Do NOT fear!  This really works:

I want to share with you four significant moments in my nursing career.  These are moments that were “pivotal” to my career, yet I felt unworthy of the success and accomplishment.

My goal with this isn’t to provide myself with some sort of self therapy by talking about my past . . . on the contrary, I hope that by sharing these experiences you might avoid my fate and find a new sense of joy in your accomplishments and begin to feel proud of what you have done.

My Experiences

2011

We had our son, Taz, during my first semester.

It was the first day Spring semester of 2011.  My wife and I had just moved across the country for me to begin nursing school.  This was the first time I was going to meet my new cohort.  The small group of 25 of us were going to go through hell and back again on our journey to RN.

I walked into the small conference room and found an empty chair.  Trying to avoid being too obvious I peered around the room trying to “size up” the competition.  Immediately, I chilling through ran down my body . . . “I’m the only lucky one here.  Everyone else here is so much more prepared than me.  I hope no one discoverers how dumb I am.  Oh well, you’re probably going to fail out soon anyway.”

2013

Heading to work as a new intern.

Another first day.  This time it was my first day on the job as a brand new grad nurse in the Neuro ICU of a large Trauma I hospital in Downtown Dallas.

The room was packed with fresh nurses.  Again, I arrived an found an empty chair.  Before I could even open the “Orientation Pamphlet” the same thought entered my mind . . . “Keep your head up.  Smile.  No one will realize that you are the lucky one.  Somehow your application fell through the cracks.  All these other new nurses probably went to better schools, did better internships, and will survive nursing orientation better than you.”

2014

One of our first emails.

I sat my wife down and told her I wanted to start a website called NRSNG.com.  On the site I was going to post “study aids for nursing students” because “I felt like I was jipped during my nursing school experience, and I want to help other future nurses have a better experience than I did”.

She said, “Wow, that’s a great idea!”

Aaaaand . . . there came that voice . . . “Are you crazy?!?!?  Who is going to want to listen to you?  What have you got to share that will help other students?  People are going to trash you online and tear you apart.  They are gonna know that you are a terrible nurse and teacher”.

2015

Fun in the ICU on Halloween.

7:15pm.  My ICU manager pulls me aside.  “Jon, we’re going to start training you to be a charge nurse.”

After the initial shock wore off, you guessed it, the same thoughts came into my mind. . . “Why would the nurses listen to you?  You aren’t prepared to lead the unit.  Somehow, Judy (my manager), doesn’t realize how mediocre of a nurse you are.  She will certainly regret her decision to make you a charge nurse after you run the unit into the ground”.

Impostor Syndrome

Full disclosure . . . I want to tell you guys about a “problem” I struggle with.  I’ve always struggled with this as long as I can remember.  It’s something called Impostor Syndrome . . . what’s that?

Impostor syndrome is a concept describing high-achieving individuals who are marked by an inability to internalize their accomplishments and a persistent fear of being exposed as a “fraud”. . . Despite external evidence of their competence, those exhibiting the syndrome remain convinced that they are frauds and do not deserve the success they have achieved. Proof of success is dismissed as luck, timing, or as a result of deceiving others into thinking they are more intelligent and competent than they believe themselves to be. Some studies suggest that impostor syndrome is particularly common among high-achieving women.   –Source

Essentially, despite achieving great things, despite praise and compliments, despite external accolades . . . . you:

  • Feel like a fake
  • Feel like you don’t deserve the success, like you just got lucky
  • Feel like everyone else around you somehow is more prepared
  • Believe you aren’t intelligent

There are a few interesting elements to impostor syndrome that I think apply to nursing students and nurses:

  • Exists in high-achieving individuals (ummm . . . nurses)
  • More prevalent in women
  • Affects as much as 70% of individuals (we all feel like the dumb/lucky one)

Impostor Syndrome in Nursing

I think as nurses are prone to impostor syndrome.  First of all, as we are starting out in a nursing program we are surrounded by other brilliant individuals who are all driven, dedicated, and intelligent. Secondly, in many instances, we are faking it.  When we go to clinical we are “playing nurse”, trying to provide holistic care to our patients with very little knowledge base . . . it’s tough!

With that said, I think it’s equally important that you learn to recognize this syndrome in yourself and discover how you can root it out and move THROUGH the feelings of unworthiness and doubt.

Through the 4 examples I mention above, I KEPT GOING.  I didn’t allow those moments of doubt to stop me.  These feelings of doubt and inadequacy creep in all the time as I lead the team at NRSNG.com.  Some days I’m confident as hell.  Other days, I’m scared as hell.

As nurses, our primary goal is to provide the best possible care for our patients.  While caring for another human being is intimidating, feeling worthless and doubting yourself does NO good for the patient.

Do You Have Impostor Syndrome?

If as you are reading this you are thinking, “Hey, that sounds like me”, you might have impostor syndrome.  Here are a few other ways to identify it in yourself.

  • Diligence: do you feel the need to work harder and harder so that others don’t discover you as an impostor?  Sadly, this hard work pays of with continued success and praise, which perpetuates the cycle.
  • Feeling of being phony: do you feel like you are simply giving professors the answer “they want”?
  • Use of charm: you probably have an intuitive gift for charm and connecting with others.  Do you sometimes use this gift to seek out relationships that are beneficial?  Sadly, recognition in these relationships can lead to feeling like people like you simply for your charm and not for who you are.
  • Avoiding displays of confidence: do you avoid showing confidence in your abilities or downplay your abilities?  Do you feel like believing in yourself with drive others away?

How to Overcome Impostor Syndrome

It’s important that you learn to not only recognize but overcome impostor syndrome when it bears its head. Doing so will allow you to:

  • Recognize and enjoy your successes
  • Help you reach your full potential
  • Love yourself rather than loathe

Here are a few tips to help you overcome:

  1. Stop comparing yourself to that person.  Life is not a competition.  The only person you should compare yourself to is . .  YOU.  Are you growing.  That’s all that matters.  There will always be a smarter, prettier, faster, better nurse than you.  Also, it’s impossible to know every variable in someones success and accomplishments. None of us have the same starting line nor the same goals . . . therefore, we aren’t even in the same race as anyone else.  Better stated . . . it’s not a race!
  2. Keep a file of people saying nice things about you. One of the first things I started doing when we started NRSNG.com was to keep a file of compliments.  Every time we get a nice email or review . . . it goes in the folder.  I often refer to this folder.  Whenever the nasty thought “why should anyone care what YOU have to say” creeps in, I go back to this folder.  It reminds me of the nursing students all over the world who have found success thanks to NRSNG. You should do the same.
  3. Accept that you have had some role in your successes. It’s crazy to think that you got into nursing school on pure luck, or that you got the job because your resume slipped through the cracks.  What I often tell newbies is . . . it’s the admissions committee or the managers job to determine if you should have the job/get into school, once that decision has been made you don’t need to worry about it. You are where you are due to your hard work and effort.
  4. Be honest. Realize that nobody knows what they’re doing. Most startups fail, great nurses fail the NCLEX, I have terrible grammar skills, you will make a medication error as a nurse, the greatest of the greats fail too.  Failing doesn’t mean you’re a fake.  It means you are human.  Be honest about what you do know and be honest about what you do know.

Conclusion

If you feel like an impostor . . . you’re not alone.  Most of us are terrified to admit it.   Doing so just proves we are fakes. My point is, rather than giving in to the toxic rhetoric nursing admins love to share on the first day of school (look to your left, look to your right.  One of those nursing students will fail out), I want to reword it a bit . . . :

“Look to your left, look to your right.  Chances are both of those nursing students are scared as shit and feel like they are gonna fail out too.”

You’re not alone!  We are here for you.  I know how terrifying it can feel to think you are a fake.  Be a bit easier on yourself this week!
