I've been out of Nursing school for about 9 months now, and I recently got a job at a LTC facility. I'm very excited, but nervous bc i feel like ive forgotten everything!
Any advice or tips to kind of job my memory? I dont want to show up on the first day and look like an idiot!!
Hope it's not too late for a reply, but i'm a new grad also. i graduated in may and started working in november. i work on a cardiac floor at a hospital with an amazing cardiac rep so it's extremely intimidating. it's been 2 months and i still feel like i don't know anything. you have to remind yourself that you're new and that it's going to take some time for you to apply everything you learned. you won't be alone so don't worry someone will always be there to back you up, prevent mistakes, and teach you. you are there to learn so don't expect yourself to be like the other nurses you work with. the importance is patient safety. i overwhelm myself all the time because i feel like i don't know anything, but all you can do is your best and speak up when you have questions. everyone already knows that you don't know everything so don't be so hard on yourself! good luck to you!
