I'm a new nurse, barely 4 months in. I've heard all the advice, give it a year, the first year is terrible, be easy on yourself, but really, how can you tell if you might be a bad nurse? I'm feeling horrible today because a pt.'s family (who were nurse's themselves) complained about me to my manager, said I didn't do a good assessment, and didn't take their concerns seriously. The way I remember it, they had one concern that I addressed but didn't really communicate with me otherwise. I just feel like crap, feeling unworthy.
