    thanks to everyone for being so supportive...i did have a chat with my NM about the situation and she acknowledged it was a problem in the past for others and had no real solid advice for me other than to stand my ground. so i shall stand my ground, as best as i can, and try to find a way to do it without getting too emotional about it (as i tend to be when i get overwhelmed). i'm quickly getting jaded by others attitudes- docs who need to be paged three times before responding to a call or complain about us nurses calling them for one thing or another- getting chided for not knowing somebody's name (hey, i'm new)- not to mention issues with some of the other nurses. i am not shy about asking for help but it gets frustrating when the requests keep getting blown off.

    it IS comforting to read posts from people who have had many years experience saying that the first year is the worst and then it gets better. makes me feel like there's a light at the end of the tunnel.

    Can I have one too? Been crying for the last two days straight. Got fired from my first nursing job after just a couple months, due to extremely unfair situation. I didn't do anything wrong! And now I may lose the chance to adopt my foster son because I don't have a job. Loooong story, but yeah, hugs would definitely be appreciated.

    Hang in there kid,it gets better,takes a while...my first every patient in my nursing career was 2 hours dead when my shift started...the offgoing nurse tried to say he was alive at the end of her shift..but i called a code as soon as i found him(10 minutes into the shift) and he was dark bluegray and rigor mortis has set in bigtime...the offgoing nurse was reprimanded and later left the hospital.....so I figured i'm starting at the bottom so it can only get better,and it did..22 years later..I'm still proud to be a nurse...
    LOLOL... you probably didn't mean it to be but this struck me as really funny right about now!!! And I needed it since I'm as tired and stressed out as the rest of you.

    (((((((((((((Hugs))))))))))))))))

    I could use a hug...today was my first day on the floor and I only shadowed but I came in late today because I never got a schedule..so I felt really bad.. But the manager was really understanding about it. I also feel overwhelmed because even though I can already do some stuff....there's so much to learn...~sigh~ Hope things get better. I know its my first day on the floor and all...but I want to do a good job.

    I absolutely need a hug. Honestly, I don't get enough of them, maybe if I get one hug within a week, I am happy.

    It can be really tough to work on a unit. Period. I just don't know what else to say anymore. Everyone on my unit looks tired. We need clowns or hug-me teddy bears to put a smile on our face. Whatever works, right?

    But I have been planning on organizing my day better with a sketch sheet. Since there are no homework assignments for orientation, I have decided to make my own. It'll be my blue print for the day.
