    New grad here, in my 3rd week of orientation in the ER. I was a tech there for a year and a half and also did my senior level preceptorship in another ER. I LOVE my job. LOVE. I have had some challenges but my preceptor is amazing and the transition has been much smoother than I thought it would be. I'm allowed up to 12 weeks of orientation. It's going we'll so far. Good luck to you, ask for help as you need it!

    Scared is good. It gets better. By 6 months you'll be comfortable. By 9 months you'll be scared again because you've realized how much you don't know.

    And then it gets better. By 2 years you'll have reached "bring it on".

    So jealous of you all! ER is my life! I'm hoping and crossing my fingers/toes I get into my hospital's new grad program. They always open ER positions so I'm so anxious for my interview! Good luck to you all. Hopefully, I can post on this thread about my new grad ER position!
