Quote from Biffbradford
I can definitely see their point of view. Honestly, you don't even know what you don't know and a more experienced ICU nurse can run circles around you in terms of avoiding complications before they even rear their ugly head. Show confidence in your abilities and as always, be a sponge when you do see new things.
It can be done ,It will be brutal, You will miss things, make mistakes and it will effect patient care.
A lot depends on how or if you can work with your co-worker and get there support,
and how badly you want to succeed. YOU will have to prove yourself capable.
Work smarter, and harder, ask for help, offer help, ask questions, Be emotionally strong.
Try to figure out where your patient is now and where you want them to be and how
YOU ARE GOING TO GET THEM THERE, you have to be the eyes and ears of the doctors.
Remember that how you do will, both positively and negatively will effect those new grads that will try to follow you.
NO, it not fair but that's the way it is. Be a NURSE
