New Grad a new specialty....that I know nothing about

  1. Well hello to everyone-

    Ill start by introducing myself. My name is Jordan, and I have recently graduated with my associate degree RN. I have taken and passed my boards and landed a job at a large magnet status teaching hospital where I worked while I was in school and LOVE. I will be working in the Neuroscience Dept. I have always had a fascination with the human brain and its intricate spiderwebbing of complexities, yet I feel like a total fish out of water. We maybe touched on the tip of the neuro iceberg in school... I dont start my nurse residency until Oct 1st so I have some time to catch up on some topic reading...any advice on what I may want to brush up on?
    Thanks for any and all advice. I am so open at this point....and lost. lol

    Welcome Jsnap1
    Congrats on your accomplishments and recent new job.
    Check out the "specialties" tab on the yellow bar at the top of the screen. There is a neuro-nurse section. I am sure you will find some valuable information there. Good luck to you.
