I'm a new LVN with about 6months of experience. In nursing school I was second in my class and was always very anxious about learning everything and retaining it all. Now a little over a year out of nursing school I feel like everything I learned is falling out of my ears! I only got 6 months of experience before I had to quit work for cancer treament (3 rounds of immunotherapy and a partial nephrectomy). I've been out of work for 8 months now and I'm freaking out inside that I'm going to forget everything. I'm also afraid of how the time out of work and how new I still am is going to effect me getting a job again when I'm well (which will be very soon). I'm starting college again in the fall to finish my ADN and have subscribed to two nursing magazines that will hopefully keep me up with the info, but I feel like its not enough. I'm a mess.
I guess I'm just looking for reassurance and advice.
