Hi! I am a newly hired RN at a rural hospital in Kansas. I have been working there for the past month or so as a GN and just found out today that I FINALLY have my RN license. I passed my NCLEX-RN with 75 questions on the first try! I am so excited! But now I am nervous. An RN license is such a responsibility! I want to learn as much as I can about my new profession. I feel like I am so inexperienced. Any tips, help, ideas about where to look for good information would be greatly appreciated! I am still on orientation so I know I won't be left completely alone for awhile, but I want to make sure that my orientation time is used wisely and I am fully ready to be left alone when the time comes. I do work days so I know that if I have problems there are other RNs in the building but I will be working the hospital side completely alone, eventually. I feel like my weakness is documentation, so any help with that would be appreciated! My last year in nursing school
we went to computer charting and now that I am working in a rural hospital I have had to go back to paper charting with nurses notes and flow sheets. Any tips would be a great help! Thank you so much.
