I just left ICU for the PACU after 9 years. At the beginning of the ICU career, I had an orientation from hell that I do not want to repeat, so I'm trying to keep my mouth shut, opinions to myself, and my ears and eyes open.
I'm not sorry I left the ICU. I'm just not really enjoying orientation yet.
I hate being new.
I need encouraging survival tips.
Did I mention I hate being new??
