I am a new NP and I am working in Long Term Care with residents who have end-stage illness. As a RN I loved my job, as an NP not so much; I question and worry about every order or decision I make. I worked in an ER but it was 2 hours away, I worried about my decisions but not as much as I worry now. One of the doctors I work with told me it would take about a year or so for me to be comfortable with my new role.
My question is for noviced and experienced NPs; will this pass or is it my setting? I have been working in this setting for 6 months.
