I remember being nervous at the start of my intern year 😬
Nervous I would be in a code and not have my ACLS card memorized and push the wrong drugs.
Nervous I would get lost pre-rounding on my patients.
Nervous patients would get mad at me for waking them up to check their heart and lungs- “who is this tiny doctor looking person coming in my room on her own anyway!?” (This was in my head – no one ever said that to me 😂).
Nervous I would make a mistake in ordering medications- even for someone’s bowel movements!
Nervous to call a consult.
Nervous when presenting patients to attendings- would my voice quiver? Would I not be able to answer a question about my patient?
The list goes on!
So if you are nervous about July 1st, it’s okay, you are most definitely not alone. It gets better with time, and your coresidents and seniors are there for you!
