Once upon a time, we were new to nursing. We grew up and forgot how it feels.
The fear, the anxiety, the patients ... you remember right?
What do you remember the most as a first-year nurse?
What would you like to say to a new nurse?
If you have any tips or inside knowledge please share.

As a new nurse myself I find that if the patient asks me something that I'm not sure about I tell them It's usually around midnight that I have a chance to go through the charts and read the physician notes etc. When I do I'll let them know what I learn. (I work nights) It buys me time to figure things out while assuring them that they're going to get the most accurate information. The most important thing is if you say you're going to do something, do it.
