Yesterday was my last day on orientation. It was the best feeling in the world! Well... on second thought... passing the NCLEX felt maybe just a smidge better. I still left the unit with an extra bounce in my step though.
I had the absolute best preceptor in the world train me, but I still do not like being watched. It makes me anxious. I work best without an audience.
I thought that I would dread the day when I had to go solo and take patients that were genuinely 100% mine, but I find myself excited and renewed. Being precepted feels too much like being back in nursing school.
So begins a new chapter. Just thought I would share. Anyone else done with orientation?
