I'm looking for some insight. I am a new nurse (4mo) and I am starting to feel very discouraged. I work in a rural hospital. We all work med surg and ER usually 3 of us Overnight. I feel I am learning so much. I never thought I could learn so much in my first couple of months as a new nurse. While I am starting to feel somewhat comfortable in my basic nursing skills I am still very shaky in the ER. Ok. I am a nervous wreck in the ER. While most of our patients are requiring basic clinical things we still have codes and chest pain people we are needing to fly out. Ok. Long story short. Management is starting to ask me to take the charge position on occasion... I am just not comfortable with that yet. I work alongside some new nurses also that will take that charge position. Am I being too cautious? I would rather be cautious than hurt someone. I just need some insight from other nurses. Thank you!!
