First day on my own--from worst to first

Well my first day as a stand alone RN I got pulled onto a floor with a big patient load. Just when I was organized, they pulled me to the other side with all new patients. Then four hours into my shift I was pulled back to my floor with new patients. I kept myself in good spirits by telling myself I was in good spirits. You know that little voice, "I think I can I think I can". My first day as a full RN became one of the most wonderful days in a long time. I did it, and I did it under stressful conditions. Yeah for me. Nobody was going to ruin it for me and I didn't let it. Yeah for me again!

Good for you! Attitude is everything.

Some people would have wanted to cry.

But what kind of crap is that, just more nurse abuse.

Glad you kept your spirits up. We never would have floated a new RN like that. We give them a couple of months on the floor before they are floated.

Keep up the good work!
