New grad RN

  1. I graduated last month from nursing school(ADN program) and passed boards this past Thursday(shut off after 75 questions). I will start to work on a med/surg floor on night shift. Any advice?

    Congrats! I graduated in December, and I take the NCLEX this Thursday.

    Haven't interviewed for my first gig yet... haven't really thought about much other than passing this dang test!

    Did you already started your job? How is it going? For advice on sleep, many nurses I know take melatonin but that is if you cant sleep. I hated nights when I started but several years later and now I dont see myself leaving it.

    I just have finished my orientation so I am officially on my own now. I really like it so far. And I am so glad I got night shift bc day shift is too crazy for me right now.

    Oh thats good. I just noticed my non-english in my last post but anyways lol. Sometimes on days that are short staffed I add to just see how it is, good to try after you get experienced.
