I am a new grad starting my first job as an RN on a med surg unit. I am excited & terrified. Med-surg was not my best clinical in nursing school
& I am worried that I will not remember anything I learned. I am wondering what others' experiences have been starting out in med-surg. Did you spend your off days studying procedures & disease processes? I will be working 5 nights a week & I have four kids. I don't feel like I will have any time to brush up on my knowledge outside of work. Will working with my preceptor be enough? Is there any one pocket sized book that I can get that will help me "fake it til I make it"? Thanks!
