I am a new grad nurse and have been on my own for less then a month after about a month and a half of orientation on a busy medical-surgical unit. My first few weeks went okay, with a few bumps in the road. But today was horrible. I recieved a new admit and the patient was pretty unstable. I'm questioning how I managed the situation, and the nurse I gave report to also questioned some of my decisions. During the shift I have several "freezing up" moments. I asked for a lot of help. The patient was okay when I left my shift. But when I got home I finally broke down. Very upset and anxious. I am second-guessing myself as a nurse. I want to get out while I can, or find something different to do. I get this sick to my stomach feeling during report. I am thinking of holding out for a year and then moving to something different. But I don't know if I can make it for a year. My biggest fear is harming a patient.
