Newbie

  1. 4 Hi! I just wanted to say hello. I graduated nursing school in May, and I passed NCLEX RN in June. I feel very fortunate to have secured a job on a Med/Surg floor. I am hoping to be an active member on this board. Some of you blow me away with how much you know. I'm so impressed, and I hope you know that people like me really appreciate that you take the time to share your knowledge and expertise. Like other baby RNs, I am very nervous about starting my new job on the 23rd. I pray for a nice preceptor.

    I agree with you. I love reading the posts and hearing what everyone has to say. I can't wait to be one of the people that have the knowledge to help others on here. I too am a new RN and start my new job on a Med/Surg floor on the 23rd, lol. Who knows...maybe we are at the same hospital. I am sooo nervous. Luckily, I got hired by the hospital that I really wanted to work at. They seem to be really good with training new nurses. Good luck and let us know how you like it.

    Hi, Lindsey. Thanks so much for the response. So nice to meet you. Congratulations, Nicolle! So glad to meet somebody who is also starting a new career as an RN and on the same day too. :-). Would love to keep up with you. Thanks for the welcome, Vicky!

    Same here! Graduated in May, NCLEX in June, just received an offer for a med/surg/diabetes floor! Same floor I spent the last 16 weeks of school on for clinicals. I start 8/13 (my birthday) Eeek!

    This is a great thread, and I've also been sifting through this forum like crazy - I graduated with my BSN this past May, and I also start on a surgical floor next week. Like the rest of you, I'm excited and terrified (I'm trying to preemptively come up with a good organizational system before I start). I'm sure in the coming weeks we'll all be comparing notes, as well as hopefully getting some sanity checks from the pro veteran med-surg nurses here.

    Olliesmommy-- congratulations! You certainly must have impressed somebody!! Many of my classmates are having a really hard time obtaining employment. My heart really goes out to them because they are all exceptional nurses. I wish you luck in your new position. Happy birthday too! It's right around the corner! Alibee-- congratulations to you as well! I'm so glad to meet people in the same situation. This was actually something I was hoping for. Everybody keeps telling me that I need a good support system. Nobody fully understands what nurses go through unless they are a nurse or have been a nurse before.

    Here's a worry that I have: IV insertion. My school in Philadelphia didn't teach us anything about it aside from how to look for infiltrations. We didn't get to practice in school because of "liability" (is this normal throughout the country?), and we're supposed to learn on the job. I'm VERY nervous; I can't imagine patients are going to be thrilled about guinea pigging for me. I've been watching videos and tourniqueting myself and family members to palpate for veins and spot where valves are so I can avoid them, but still, it's nerve racking.
