Starting first lpn job very nervous

  1. 0
    Hi, I'm Lisa I live in South Carolina. Got my license July last year, been try to find a job without luck. Finally found a job at a small nursing home, it's 95 beds, patient ratio is 20/1 depending on how many residents. I'm so nervous, anything I should know to do well on my first job? I'm going to be starting orientation march 5! Will eventually be working 3-11 shift. How long was your orientation for a first job?

    I graduated in December I am on my 4th week out of 5 of orientation. The first few days will be very overwhelming so just be prepared and it will get easier!
