Please share something you wish you had known when you started or something you learned really quick afterwards that would have been helpful in the beginning. Thank you! Ps. I start my first job Monday-extremely nervous.
Another thing - I know we all want to feel secure and trust our coworkers, but always be cautious.
If push comes to shove, folk will always stand to self-preserve first. You will be a very distant number 2. (The proverbial sacrificial lamb, under the bus, flapping in the wind, etc.) So just be careful. Esp in pt care decisions or when in doubt...
I realize you're just starting and I don't want to deflate your hopes & dreams so I want to qualify my comment to say you will most likely meet terrific staff who will provide help & support. And friendships along the way. I still have the highest respect & admiration for coworkers I met eons & eons ago (I have no clue where some of them are today) and I did trust them. But some others....
I guess it's like life outside of work.
