OK, I have been an LPN for almost 6 years, graduated from an ADN program in May and just finished my first week of orientation on my new unit, Critical Care. Right now I am sure that I don' t really know ANYTHING and I only graduated from nursing school because of luck. I still have to do my IV cerification, PICC certification, and vent certification! The only thing I know about vents is that they alarm alot and when they alarm your patient is not breathing! Did I mention that all the patients are on telemetry monitors, many have central lines, and more than half have trachs?
Everyone keeps telling me to relax it will come to me but I just don't know. Anyone else feel like a dunce after graduation?
