    We've all run into a "new nurse". What's the most memorable experience you ever had with a new nurse? Maybe it was something they said ??? Or, something they did? Good or bad share your story...

    I've never met that sort of new nurse.

    They always look they're about to be dipped in a vat of boiling oil.

    Maybe I'm that "new" nurse, lol. So far I'm really liking the floor I'm on and my preceptor is very helpful.

    Grow a sense of humor, you will last longer.

    I told me new preceptee I don't want her to end up like me, so I am putting on my best front so she isn't jaded right out of the gate. The powers that be did not allow that to last long. First 3 nights and we saw 2 patients 10 times in those 3 days. Poor thing, I hope she lasts.

    I'm a new nurse. Been on the job for about a month and a half now. I can't lie: I've never felt so stupid in my life lol. Fortunately, my preceptor's very patient with me, but all the mistakes I make get on my nerves, and it's very frustrating not to already be the best right out of the gate. I guess I just have to give myself six months to a year to finally settle in, and try my hardest between now and then not to make any majorly critical errors.
