Yes, it is very normal. 

Do a search here and you will find a ton of threads about new nurse anxiety.

Don't worry about disappointing people. Worry instead about taking excellent care of your patients. Being a brand new nurse is super humbling. Accept where you are. You have a lot to learn and you are going to be making mistakes, getting corrected and learning every single day. That is normal.
