1. Hello, I'm new to the forum and I'm excited about being able to communicate with other individuals that know what I go through on a daily basis. I've been a nurse for a little over 2 years and I had a rough time in the beginning and I wish I new about this web site as a New Grad. I started in Oncology Med-Surg, and stayed for a year and a half and asked my self every day if I made the right decision ( becoming a Nurse). My preceptor and manager was horrible and their were no resources and no support from older (seasoned) staff. I broke my contract and decided to work as a home health Nurse ( for 4 mos), and I instantly realize that home health was not for me... Due to not having enough experience as a Nurse. So, I decided to work at a Hospital 10 mins away from my home in the ED. And so far I've learned more in 8mos than I did on the floor for 2 1/2 years. The staff is great and they have plenty of resources.......... Needless to say I'm much happier now.....
