I swear you took a peek inside my brain and wrote this post. I have 3 shifts left before I'm on my own. Hold me. I'm on a busy floor, too and our acuity is fairly high. I struggle with many things right now, but one of the biggest ones is when to call the doc. Which doc do I call/page? I've done this, that, and the other, but have I really done any critical thinking about what my patient is experiencing? Time management. Prioritization. Etc, etc, etc. Everyone keeps telling me I'm doing fine. Everyone keeps saying that it takes time and I'll be just fine. Everyone is very, very helpful and nice. Thank God. But I hate feeling stupid pretty much every single day.
One bright spot is that when I look back over the last 8 weeks I can't believe how much I've learned!
Hang in there...we can only do our best.
