advice for getting back to ICU,...

  1. Well, I got a job back in ICU at a different hospital after a 5 year break raising my family. I had 7 years experience prior to my break. I have to admit, I am getting nervous! What if it has changed so drastically that I am like a new grad? I know there are going to be different policies and standards that have changed but I did not think I would be this nervous! Anyone else return back to the Unit and feel this way? I am excited and nervous at the same time! What helped you re-enter your once confident zone?? thanks,....
