Starting on my own

  1. HI everyone, I just ran across this site about a half an hour ago. I was searching the web trying to find sites that support nurses. I am done with orientation on my floor and tonight will be my first night on my own. I have been nervous for this day. I know I am competent in nursing, but the thought of finally being on my own and not having that support person right there is scary. So I found this website and was reading questions that people wrote and found them to be similiar experiences. Does anyone have advice about finally being on your own or similiar frightening experiences?

    Good luck to you. It's tough out there, and you live, work and learn. Welcome to the website. Anytime you're stress, have questions, or need to vent this is the place to do it (there are many different boards to choose from) because you'll find support and understanding.
