    Well, I'm a new RN grad, although I was an LVN for a couple years. I have to say, I was a bit of a mess during my first couple days on the floor. I hadn't done clincials at this hospital, so the charting, policies, flow... EVERYTHING was new. I said a couple of stupid things. I dropped a pill on the floor (first for me). I almost put some foot cream on the wrong patient. And I was all thumbs with the IV pumps.

    In my heart, I know I'm a strong nurse. I'm still getting up to speed with this new job. But those first couple days were just embarrassing. It's a combo of nerves and just learning the ropes, I think.

    Perhaps your new grads will rise to the occasion if you give them a chance.
