    maximaxi...I am here to assure you that you are not alone in your feelings. I too just started my first job as an RN. 4 weeks ago to be exact....I am so overwelmed sometimes I can not even remember how to do the simplest tasks like drawing up IV lasix. My preceptor just laughs at me sometimes...good luck to you!!!
