I am a recent ADN new grad who was hired onto a CCU almost 6 months ago. I accepted this job although I have NEVER wanted to work in an ICU and it was the only job offer I had at the time. I must say that I have learned and grown a lot as a nurse, but this is not where I want to be. We have a wonderful team and it's nice to see people who love what they do, but I don't share the same feelings and feel overwhelmed many days.
So my question is, is this something that I need to just give more time and I may learn to love it just the same as some of the others? Or do I search for something else? Is this just a feeling that many new grads experience and I am just going through a part of growing up as a nurse?
Please send any advice my way and let me know if I can answer any questions or provide more info so you can provide better advice if needed. Thanks!
