I am a new grad as of december of 2008, and I was just hired at a rural hospital in MT. I was wondering if anyone can give me any pointers?
A little bit about the facility: The hospital is connected to a long term care facility, which I will be their charge nurse. I will have a max of 4 acute care patients and I will run their ER. They always have a MD and a respiratory therapist on call that live in the same town. I will orient in the day for 12 weeks but once that is over, I will be working at night as the only RN. 2 weeks of my orientation will be in the ER at a bigger facility in a larger town....just so I get some more experience in.
Any advice would be fantastic! I am a little nervous...
