    Thanks Angie for sharing your experience. Good luck with your future.
    It is really sad to know that nurses eating their young is not fading with time. I am sure nurses like you will bring a change.
    As my nursing teacher said, nursing is a life long process.It is not only limited to learning about meds or helping people when they are sick. You learn a lot more than you can ever think of. I am glad you did not give up and you proved yourself as a ''GREAT NURSE''.
    Pray to God for your bright future.

    Thank you for posting this! I'm a new graduate and I am expecting this to happen when I enter the work place. This is very encouraging and whenever I feel down, I'll make sure to read this post again to get some inspiration.

    Oh my goodness, THANK YOU so much for sharing your experince. I am a new grad RN who's been on orientation for the last several weeks and I must say it's very tough. I often find myself discouraged and ready to call it quits, but I can't. I refuse to give up.

    You are sooooo awesome. I just passed my nclex and am in the job hunt with a couple of offers on the table. Your experience has encouraged me to hang in there when it gets tough and seek support. I hope I have as much gusto as you do!

    I swear after reading your experience with your first year of nursing, I must say I feel so much better about going into my 3-11 shift in a few hours despite how I normally dread the hell out of it. I too am an outsider in my 99% Spanish-speaking facility with people talking behind my back thinking I dont understand them when I actually & moderately do. I'm so glad that I read this because before this I felt like I was just going to kill myself. But I realize now that it takes time. It takes time to make yourself and prove yourself that you can be one of them and that you are infact destined to succeed and be a great nurse. So that's what you have inspired me to do; to hang on and learn as much as I can and do the best that I can.

    Thank you so much. You've made a world of difference.
