“Thinking about quitting my job due to stress and anxiety..I can barely breathe just knowing I have to go back on Mon. I barely kept myself together all week and cried uncontrollably several times in front of everyone. I feel so incompetent and ashamed. I know being a new nurse is tough for everyone, but when do I decide that it's just not right for me? I know it takes time but it's not fair to my patients or coworkers that I can barely function at work. I never want to show my face there again.”
