Greetings all! I am a new RN. Graduated in May passed boards in August. I did not make it out of orientation in my first job. It was a total nightmare!! I got fired October 1st. I have had four months to understand what went wrong and what part I played in the matter. I was really scared and nervous and this affected my job performance quite terribly. Also, I did not want to be perseived as incompetent so I did not ask questions when I should have. I messed up and have learned what to do and what not to do next time. My question to you is:
Would you hire a new nurse whose first job did not work out? I know I am not the first new nurse whose first job did not work out and has gone on to be a success. I do not understand why I am having such a hard time. Could you please offer your expertise to this issue. I appreciate all responses.
