As a new grad nurse, there were certain difficulties I expected: encountering incivility, imposter syndrome, getting used to a rotating schedule, etcetera. However, there was one thing I didn't anticipate being my biggest hurdle in my short 5 months as a new nurse ... It felt like this obstacle wasn't talked about, leaving me feeling alone until I spoke with a peer and found out she felt the exact same way. This got me thinking there are likely other new grads struggling with the same thing, too. I discuss my struggle and tips I have learned so far.
