HEY EVERYONE,STARTING WORK MONDAY, READY TO PUT MY SKILLS TO THE GRIND,SCARED TO DEATH,WILL ORIENT FOR A FEW DAYS,ANY TIDBITS IS APPRECIATED,MAYBE I AM JUST TOO ANXIOUS,HUH?I FEEL LIKE I DID NOT LEARN ENOUGH IN SCHOOL! GOOD DAY...
When I first graduated, I was scared to death, too. Just remember you are not alone. And LISTEN to what the experienced CNA's and LVN's have to say, they will help you with things you NEVER were taught in nursing school.
Congratulations and best wishes for a rewarding career. NO ONE is totally prepared in SCHOOL. That is what on-the-job training is for. Like said above, ask ask ask...and do do do...be a sponge and absorb it all. You will do fine! Good luck.
