I recently became a licensed RN and it was one of the happiest and proudest moments in my life. Yesterday, I received a call back from a large university teaching hospital for a Telemetry position, nights. While I am beyond happy and excited for the possibility in front of me, I'm also terrified and worried. Being a nurse is a huge responsibility and being new and inexperienced can be very intimidating. I know everyone has orientation and isn't expected to know everything there is to know the 1st day... but I'm still so worried now!!! I haven't even gotten the job (just an interview) and I'm worried! Lol
Right now I'm working as a part time nursing assistant at a small, community hospital. I like it here because we all know each other and I like that. There are no job openings for RNs right now though. A coworker from the ICU is also a nurse manager of the ICU at the larger teaching hospital. He's helped me a lot to even get this interview.
Just feels like everything is happening so fast!!! I'm sooo happy, but soooooo nervous now! Can anybody please give me some pointers??
Thanks so much
