I did talk with her and told her that although I was very overwhelmed on that day, I was grateful for the experience as it helped me to learn and grow as an RN. She reassured me that she was always available to help me if needed. I also thanked her for being an awesome leader and it meant a lot to me to know that she sincerely cares about her staff.
I think I will be very happy working on that unit....even more so once I start nights!
Thanks to all of you for your encouraging words as well! AN rocks!
