Anyone else trying to manage nursing school while suffering with OCD? I can’t imagine inserting a catheter on someone and you can guess why. I suffer from Pocd, harm ocd, and contamination ocd mainly so it makes nursing really tough. The nursing tasks are extremely distressing for me, like I can’t do them but I literally need to for my (future) job. 😭
What got you into nursing?
Well it was before my OCD got bad but the birth of my sister made me want to be a labor and delivery nurse but now I want to be a mental health nurse!
