I'm a new grad nurse as well, and I get nervous before going in to work also. I've been told that being nervous is a good thing, it means that you're going to be careful and ask questions when you need to, the other nurses that I work with said that they'd be more concerned about an overly confident new grad than one who gets nervous. However, I think that if your nerves are too bad that it might be crippling and have a negative effect on your practice. Whenever I feel my nerves getting the best of me, I try to just think to myself that if I wasn't good enough, if I really did have no idea what I was doing, then I wouldn't have graduated, gotten my licence or gotten hired! It's also comforting to remember that almost every time another nurse has taught me something, they tell me that they learned this by making a mistake, it reminds me that EVERYONE makes mistakes, it's not just me.
So, just wondering, what is it that really scares you about going to work? I mean, what do you worry about happening? For me my biggest fear has been time management and not being able to get anything done on time, so I'm just wondering about your fears, lol!
