I am a new grad (August 06). I am from Michigan, and basically took my NCLEX there, and about a week and half later came out to California (central valley). My fiance got a job out here in August, as I was finishing nursing school, so that is how i ended up here. I visited once during September and meet with two hospitals. I got a job offer right away from one, and I accepted it. I think I am having a very bad case of the new job/new nurse jitters because I am constantly second guessing my choice. I guess I just have to stick it out and hope for the best.
I am planning my wedding for this September, so that is another added stress. I am missing my family and friends so much. I just wish I knew more people out here..
But that is me in a nutshell. I am open to any advice that a seasoned nurse can give a newbie like me. I am normally a very outgoing person, but lately I am shy b/c i am not yet comfortable in my new surroundings.
Thanks for reading..
