I have just started my orientation as a new grad in a level 3 NICU and I have to say it has been the most enjoyable couple of days so far! I feel so lucky to have such a great job in a wonderful facility with people who are absolutely amazing and willing to teach and respect me even as a newbie. The pace has been set in a way that makes me eager to try new things instead of feeling overwhelmed and afraid. There really are places out there that want to teach you properly and want you to be successful and comfortable with what you are doing! I can vouch for it! I believe that all nurses should be oriented this way and it really is a shame when it doesn't work out the way mine has been so far. I just wanted to tell everyone out there that although anxiety is common when starting a new job, sometimes the people there make all the difference! I couldn't thank my unit enough and can't wait to be a more functional member of their team that I am sincerely honored to be a part of!
