Got the dream job, not quite sure if I'm walking into failure

Hey y'all,

I gotta back up a bit because I need to give this a little context:

In 2016 I was a new grad and started a Neuro PCU residency. Problem is, that only lasted 6 months. A family member got sick, we didn't know how much time they had left, I quit and went home to help take care of them.

18 months passed and aside from taking care of a loved one I have spent 0% of my time doing nursing.

Somehow God threw me a hail mary and I got a job offer for the ICU at the Mayo Clinic. Yeah, I know, I crapped my pants a little.

Now my manager knows this AND she hired me anyways, saying the orientation process will give me everything I need to know and that I'll be successful. I'm not totally convinced and think I'm in for something way over my head.

I really need either encouragement or cold hard truth because moving from Texas to MN is not going to be easy...

It's Mayo. They take care of their employees and the healthcare is world renowned. Probably the best job offer of bedside nursing someone could ever get. Just decide if it's worth it to you to move up to MN. Obviously you considered it if you applied and interviewed.

Thank you. Seriously, thank you. I have always wanted to do ICU nursing and I can't think of a better place to do it. I also kinda have Asperger's so learning can be a little difficult as I remember things better by writing them down

Thank you, I really needed to hear this.

Mayo from what I have heard really does give thier staff the tools to be successful. Before you pack up and move I would think on it hard. It could be nerves since you have been out of practice. Best of luck.
