    Brand new - focus on assessment skills and time management (including priorities). Don't be afraid to ask questions. If you don't know how to do something/unsure/not confident doing it on your own - ASK. Your coworkers would rather you ask questions/ask help before you do potential harm. Same goes with doctors and even with experienced nurses. If I don't know how to do something/am unsure/not confident - I ask.

    Learn drugs. Don't be afraid to take time to research in the IV drug book for meds or look up something you might not know. It takes time to learn the common ones. If you don't know what a prescription is, again, ask. I still do this on the surprise script I'm unsure about. Work in a big ER teaching facility? You might get new drugs. Don't be afraid to ask the doctor or call pharmacy about it.
