I am a final year nursing student, I have been placed in the ED for the next 4 weeks. The only other nursing work I have done prior to this is aged care. Yesterday was my first day and I felt so under prepared it wasn't funny. The nurses were great and I spent most of the day observing and asking questions. I enjoyed the day but felt like I could never imagine myself being as knowledgable and experienced as those nurses, I felt like the only thing I knew how to do was take vital signs (and even then I became a nervous wreck and it seemed to take me forever to complete). I guess nerves are getting the better of me and i'm definitely feeling a bit lost. What is your advice for somebody new to ED, I really want to make the most of these 4 weeks and learn as much as I can.
