What steps should I take to gain the most experience and competency during my first year as an RN? My areas of interest are ER, ICU med/surg but I want to have a comfortable transition into it, if at all possible. I will sit for the NCLEX-RN this summer and will have completed ACLS (all through an ADN program). I'm 22 y/o, live in Kansas, and am excited to start my career as a nurse. Any of your shared wisdom would really be appreciated and taken into consideration. Thanks!!
