I am a new grad rn going on 8 months. I work on an ortho unit at a level1 trauma hospital. It's always busy and we constantly seem to be short at least 1 rn and 1 tech each night. I feel thankful that I have not been faced with a cor yet, however I really just want to get the first one out of the way, does that sound sick? I come to work each night in a bundle of nerves, wondering if tonight is the night....any advice? I just want to know that I will be prepared and ready, I don't want to choke....
I think part of my problem is that my father arrested in the ICU at 230 and they were unable to bring him back. We had just left him hours earlier feeling good about his condition with his nurse telling us how stable he was and that he was doing well. This all happened my first year of nursing school
Any thoughts or advice would be greatly appreciated. This is my first post:uhoh21:
