I start my orientation on the floor this week. I get to do 4 weeks on days then 3 weeks on nights. I know nursing school
has not prepared me for this and I am scared out of my wits. I have been a CNA/Tech for almost 24 years. I am trying to remember I am the nurse now. I am the one the CNA will come to with problems. I keep talking to myself trying to convince myself I will be ok and can do this. Afterall I did graduate nursing school and pass the NCLEX. I thought today was going to be my first day on the floor with pts. I did not sleep last night. It was like the night before clinicals all over again. Does it get easier and less scary?
