    I am a new grad on orientation right now and I am heading to my 5th week on to the floor. The first 3 weeks of my orientation were in classroom. I am totally overwhelmed, and I get what you mean about "worrying" i worry about everything.. all day. Last week I met with my nurse manager and educator and they told me they are switching me back to 8hr shifts for a couple weeks because I am not where I should be at right now during this time or orientation and that the 8 hr shifts will provide me with more experience since will be going everyday. I left the meeting shocked, upset, and most of all WORRIED about my job. I go home crying atleast twice a week after work, being a new grad is hard.. I also feel like i am annoying my coworkers, preceptors, and worry everyday (especialy after the meeting i had) that they regret hiring me. I had a nice 3 day weekend and I am working tomorrow and sunday, and I am scared/nervous to go because i feel like i am really being watched and judged about whether they are going to keep me or not. You are SO right when you say that nursing school just teaches you the basics, I only have been on the floor for a month and Im still not sure about things and need reassurance from my preceptor, im not sure where they expect you to be after one month. This is nerve-racking, I love nursing.. but i am scared.
