Words of Wisdom for a SN?

  1. I am just starting my preceptorship and after this semester I will graduate as an RN. I must admit I'm scared to death...I keep telling people I don't know what I'm going to do when I want to go find the nurse for help and... I am the nurse!

    Any of you nurses out there have words of wisdom for a SN?

    What do you wish people had told you as you were embarking on your new career?

    You are not excpected to know it all your first day on the job. You will be precepted and after that you will feel a lot more comfortable. I have been an ICU nurse now for 2 years and I still go to people and ask questions. We all do it! You will be just fine in time. Good Luck
