Starting orientation soon, yikes! Any advice?

  1. I'm a new grad starting orientation next week for a med-surg unit for one of the big hospitals in Chicago. I'm so nervous and anxious to start and I just want to be a good nurse and start off with a good foot. Do any of you have any advice on how I can be less nervous and not annoy people right away. For the people who has been off orientation recently, anything you wish you knew when you started?

    Hi there!!! I am a nursing student in Florida (getting my ADN) and I have so many questions regarding the new grad orientation in Chicago Hospitals. I will be moving there next year (260 days and counting actually, can you tell I'm super excited for that??) but anyways.. the new grad orientation is that aimed for just BSN grads? It's a year long, right? I have so many more questions if that's ok?
