#3- Quickly handle the transference...

So I have done all my paperwork. Took my test, passed, done all I can to ensure that PA has all my papers from school, from the boards, from me. NY is the last link. I am waiting. Ever impatient, for my PA license to show up. And presumably, they are waiting for NY. I had to request a letter of good standing and did so. Albany had it by Tuesday at 1030 am. I know because I overnighted and thats how I am. Nothing left to be done.

And while I am terribly impatient to start treating, I am fearful of it. Having people's health and well being in my hands is a big responsibility. Its also a big joy and a vote of confidence that together we can get these people back to their homes. But it is a little scary to take care of people and hope that I am able to help. Despite having graduated, completed 3 clinicals, and been hired, I still worry I'm not enough.

I know where that fear comes from. And I'm learning to battle that down and know I am enough and I can help and so on and so forth. But it is a responsibility I worry over.

Less than I have before, but still...

I think most people feel nervous and unsure of themselves starting something new. And I'm sure that is especially true with something like healthcare, where you have such an important responsibility. But I'm sure you'll do a great job. And once you get started and have done this for a little while, you'll feel much better.
