I'm relatively new to nursing. Not much luck getting a job this past year. I finally landed a job through an agency and they're sending me to a long-term care facility this week. I heard that the patient load is like 26 patients and I'm freaking out!! I'm soo nervous/scared/anxious...you mention it. The nursing recruiter told me that confidence is the key but right now I feel like I don't know anything. Any tips for taking care of so many patients at one time? Any tips or suggestions you can provide would be much appreciated.
