Hi hello everybody.
I'm just wondering how everybody got their feet wet in nursing. Did you have a really good mentor showing you the ropes? A really good orientation program that prepared you for your first day by yourself? Or were you just thrown in with none of the above?
(Maybe another method?)
Good question. I find it interesting because in my case it was trial by fire. Fortunately enough, I only received one patient at a time with their diagnosis, medication, and all info before accepting the patient, so I was able to carry out all the proper research, but I did have to prepare all on my own and proceed on my own as well. I always had someone in reach by phone, but the thought was still daunting. Made me tough in my shoes though!
