Anxiety and stress as a new nurse

Nurses New Nurse

Published

Hi! It's my first year as a new nurse. I was being trained to different unit in VA as I am under the RN Transition to Practice program. I was first trained in a living center now I am being trained in Med-surg. The anxiety I've been feeling seemed unbearable. I talked to the management that medsurg doesn't fit me but they said the contract I signed states that I need to finish the training. I don't know what to do. Everyday is a struggle.  I'm overly stress and anxious. I still have about 6 weeks more left. 

Six weeks is a short time. Rely on your preceptor for support.  Where would you like to work?

For the meantime I want in the living center then hopefully will transition to non bedside care
