NSS Ep12: Being Assertive in Nursing School Clinicals

esl students nursing school

Today’s Question: 

My two biggest struggles with nursing school are procrastination and not being assertive during clinicals. I have a B+ average a year into my part-time BSN program, but I’m sure I could’ve managed an A- average if I was better at time management (school, kids, husband). As far as clinical goes, I think my lack of assertiveness comes from being introverted and not wanting to make a mistake.
