Concerns have been raised that I might fail my placementWatch
I’m wondering - if, worst case scenario, I do fail, what will be the next step?
You also need to have a good conversation with your practice assessor when he/she returns from annual leave. You also may need to talk to the practice education facilitators (PEFs, or whatever they get called at your trust - the hospital student/placement/uni link people - the 2 ladies who do this at my hospital are great at supporting practice supervisors/assessors and students).
I am a Practice Assessor. I qualified in 2019 and remember what it's like to be a student. I also know that feeling of worrying about not doing well enough.
Are you trying hard? From what you've said, yes. If I were your Practice Assessor, I'd be expecting to come back off annual leave and see the improvements you've made, and/or hear about it from my colleagues.
Other question being - are you in contact with your Practice Supervisor? Communication with them may help.
