to feel free to ASK. All of us nurses get to things we do NOT know, and it is part of our duty to ASK when we reach that point. Doesn't matter how long one has been a nurse, if we don't know, we have to learn, have to ask, have to get help to know what to do.
Never ever be afraid to ask or learn the new thing you need to know. Even if it something you feel you "should already know", if you don't know, ask. So long as you do that, you will be safe.
Feel free to post your questions on the forum somewhere. BEST OF LUCK, and DO hang in there, and this nervous thing does ease on back, in time, it will, promise!!
