Experienced Nurses, Input pls!!


Hello my fellow nurses,

I'm soooo excited...I landed my dream job!! I will be working at a level IV NICU, starting Sept. 22. My concern is that I I've been out of school for a year and this will be my first nursing position. I'm a bit nervous and wanted some advice/tips/encouragement/suggestions/books or anything you can think of the help me along the ride. I thank you so much in advance :)

Otherwise, congratulations on your new position and best of luck! I've been in NICU since last November and while it kicks my butt sometimes, I love it.
