Just remember that everyone was new once. The first day is the hardest. Ask lots of questions, The only stupid question is one that isn’t asked. Respect your preceptor and other coworkers, who have been working there and nursing much longer than you...they have real life knowledge to share and is very valuable, even if it isn’t exactly “by the book.” Regardless of where you go or who you are, it’s hard to be new....thankfully you aren’t new for long. Good luck!
