    I totally understand your situation. I was in your position 1 1/2 ago. I was so scared and nervous, but I was very fortunate that the long term facility I work in the nurses I work with are very helpful. I really learned a lot from the seasoned nurses, and still do everyday. Just don't be afraid to ask questions and get help if you need it.
