I've been a RN for just under a year now, and been working my first job for about the same amount of time. I work at a ortho/surgical unit. On a daily basis, even on my days off, I feel so unhappy about where I am at. Not the career choice but my employment. We are so under staffed, have no cna's or lvn's or techs of any kind, and our patient ratio can reach 6:1. I'm still new at this and learning everyday something new and I feel like a time bomb with the amount of pressure that's put on me by the patients and doctors. I am so so nervous that I'll make a mistake and that's it... end of career. I dread going to work every time I have too.
So is it just me or what?!?!
What should I do? Please help.
