I think you are feeling completely normal.
I am a Dec graduate and I got my dream job. I wanted to work in the newborn nursery. While in school, I introduced myself to the manager, spoke with her about my interest and the possibility of working there. Basically she told me they do not normally hire new grads but to check with post partum to get my foot in the "complex" then once I had experience and there was an opening I may be able to move over. I decided to explore my options.
I ended up interviewing with the complex managers (they all interview together). Apparently, the nursery manager was impressed with me and she offered me a job in the nursery. I was so excited I couldn't stand myself, LOL. :chuckle But I was so nervous because what if I didn't liver up to her expectations. She apparently thought I was something special, I kept hearing it from everyone when I said where my job was. No one could be Jerry took me. That made it worse. I also hear the "Do a year of med-surg first". I hate med surg, why make myself miserable for a year. I didn;t have to go to nursing school
. I don't have to work, I surely did not get a degree to be miserable and that is what would happen if I went to med-surg. My point is, you know where your heart is, follow it!!!
I started in the nursery about 2 weeks ago and I love it. Everyone is so nice to me and know I know basically nothing, even the manager. I feel blessed. You are too. Take your job, enjoy it and don't worry, be happy!!!:Melody:
