I am not a new RN. I worked in a Med/Surg unit for 2 years and I will be starting a new job in the Emergency Room as of May. I always wanted to work in a critical care/ emergency setting because I enjoy the constant learning aspect and variety of disease process that this field brings in. Needless to say, I am excited and scared of this new environment. I was researching for extra materials that could help me ease my transition and found this blog. Thank you for sharing your stories and giving newbies like me advice for continuing our journeys.
P.S. Any advice is welcome so I can be as prepared as I can for my first day.

I recently re-entered nursing after a long maternity leave and found that there are great resources on youtube and you can do unlimited CE's on many nursing websites. This was helpful when I realized when I renewed my ACLS that I couldn't identify a lot of rhythms on strips (except V-Tach and V-Fib, thank goodness). You seem to have a good head on your shoulders and know when to ask for help, as long as you do that you should be fine! Best of luck!
