Hello All,I want to thank you all for taking the time to read this and address my concerns if you will. Actually, I just started this new job on a step down unit at a hospital and its got me really anxious, nervous, and all I can do this think about quitting because I feel like this is unhealthy. I have read numerous articles on this site where almost everyone who is new in nursing has gone through this phase and somehow have come to the other side as stronger nurses. I just want some pep talk and good vibes. Before this job I have had no other hospital experience except clinicals and capstones which now I feel like were nothing compared to what I am going through now that I am an official RN- rightfully so because with the title comes great and many responsibilities. I just feel so nervous and anxious that I am responsible for 4 to 5 patients and I must know exactly what to do at the right time and be quick and fast otherwise I will allow harm to come to my patients. I really hate having this feeling because I know right now being new at this I am totally inadequate. I am always worried i will make a mistake! My time management really sucks so I always am running around trying to get things done. Most nurses at my work tell me I'll be fine. I am not sure what they see in me that makes them I will be fine. They tell me I am a safe nurse but how am i safe if i dont know what to do in an emergent situation except maybe freeze? the stff I work with is really supportive but I always feel like due to my lack of confidence I can same questions for reassurance and at some point it might be annoying. I just want this time to pass quickly and not be so nervous wreck when its time to go to work specially after having a bad day- that is when i feel like quitting the most. I question why I even did this. I know everyone goes through this and I am also just payng my dues to get experience but any advice, pep talk, wisdom, suggestions.. anything is welcome. How did you get through this time?
