So I'll be starting a new position on a medical floor as a new grad RN in mid-June. The new grad initiative was filled already so I'm hired as a part-time employee.
I worked on this unit as a nursing student in my pre-grad placement but there are still A LOT of things to learn.
My manager didn't mention anything about orientation period or any of that. I'm thinking she may have the suspicion I already know things because I was there as a student.
Any advice? Thank you!!!

Definitely take the initiative and speak to your manager about topics you could review that are more relevant on the type of floor you're going to be on or just think back on the types of patients you saw while you we're a student. Study up on those topics and review your basic assessment and nursing skills. Anything new you should be able to ask your coworkers of charge nurse. Don't be scared to ask for help.
