I've been an LPN for 3 years now all of which has been spent in LTC. I am taking my RN boards in about a month and I'm not sure where to go next. The nursing home is not for me, I do know that much. I love the hospital setting, especially the trauma ICU where I spent many clinical days. However I'm scared... Really I'm scared of any setting thats different that what I'm doing now. I've learned very little in my 3 years, it seems like any time someone starts to get "bad" we just sent them out. Everyone tells me this is a normal feeling and once I am on the floor with my preceptor it will all start to flow and ill learn more than I ever imagined. But what if I forget something, what if I run a drip at the wrong rate or misinterpret someone's symptoms? Any advice, are my feelings/thoughts normal or should I stay away from acute care?
