New job Monday!

by Shagce1 Shagce1 Member

I graduated a month ago. Passed nclex this week. Start my first nursing job on Monday. Excited and terrified at the same time. Any advice or words of encouragement would be welcome. Thanks in advance!

Graduating, passing the NCLEX, and starting a new job, all in about a month? Yay for you! I definitely can relate to the feelings of excitement and terror - I just started my first nursing job not quite a month ago, and it's been a crazy ride ever since. There will be times when you'll feel like you know absolutely nothing, but everyone keeps saying that it will get better. Biggest thing to work on is good time management; I would suggest asking your coworkers for tips on organizing your shift so that you get everything completed in an efficient manner.

Remember all that you have gone through to get to this point. Be proud of what you have accomplished! Best of luck to you in your new job!
