I'm a new grad and landed my first job on a liver/lung transplant unit. Any tips? I will have 10 weeks orientation. The closer I get to my start date, the more nervous I become. lol I did get to shadow for 3 hours, I asked as many questions as I could but OMG it was total chaos on the unit with so many Teams walking through. ratio is 3-4:1.

Small world. I'll be starting on silver 11 in a few weeks and just wanted to touch base with seasoned nurses about the population!!

I only have my orientation schedule as of right now. I'll be 50/50 day/night and every 3rd weekend but that's all I know right now. What school?

It was tough but the pass rate was high which kept up my motivation, these instructors knew what they were talking about and supported us. I passed with 75 questions in 75 minutes!
