Well, my job search has been fruitful. I wanted to work in acute care, but the only hospital hiring new grad LVN's is 1.5 hours away from my house. I ended up accepting a position at a local SNF. It is a clean, prfessionally run facility and the acuity level is fairly low. The fear comes in as I think about being able to handle 30 patients. I will have several weeks of training. Any words of advice and/or encouragement would be appreciated. I figured that I might as well work close to my home and be initiated into LTC since that setting is the main option for LVN's in my area.
Anxiety is ruling my life right about now! I start in a couple of weeks.
