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.
