bigsyis 519 Posts Specializes in ER, Occupational Health, Cardiology. Has 24 years experience. Nov 5, 2007 Give the job a good shot. Hopefully, working with the seasoned nurse will help.If you don't find things improving after a while, ask if you can transfer to another dept, or find another job. ER is too much for many new grads.I think a big mistake that a lot of new nurses make is to keep trying and trying, and stay on and on in a job that is not right for them and makes them miserable. I know I did this when I started.If you find that things do not improve, try to find a position where you will feel more comfortable.I, too, agree with this. Even though you have had many years of exposure and experience in the ER, it was not with the responsibilities of the RN. Your skill set was totally different, and so was your critical thinking. Give yourself a good shot with the experienced Nurse. If it doesn't work out, don't fight it. Go to one of the floors to work until you feel more comfortable. When you do, THEN go back to the ER. It isn't worth shredding yourself for!
