First Day By Myself

  1. 2 Hi all! I finished 13 weeks of orientation last Friday ( my unit educator is awesome ) I am on a busy ortho/ general surgery floor and have learned sooooo much during my orientation. I was lucky to have amazing preceptorship and supportive coworkers. Today was my first day by myself without a preceptor.... and while I was and still am nervous ( I am so honored that I get to care for our patients), I also know that the training I received and my education has prepared me well and I look forward to learning much more and hopefully branching into the ICU in the years to come . Good luck to rest of my fellow new grads who are just starting orientations, in the middle of orientation or finishing.

    I can't wait until I'm in your position, the moment where you've finished school, got a career and finally figure out where everything is without even having to ask someone. Congrats

    Oh man!

    What degree do you have?
    ASN, BSN?
    What state are you practicing in?
    Did you have an ''in'' with management?
