Nice moment

I've been at my first RN position for six weeks, and I am still on orientation. I feel like a fish out of water a lot of the time, but my preceptor tells me I am doing very well. Yesterday was an incredibly busy 12-hr day and I spent a great deal of time thinking I was an idiot. At the end of my shift, I was saying goodbye to my patients and two of them said they were so sorry I wouldn't be their nurse the next day -- one even hugged me and told me good luck, and they all said they'd never guessed I had been a nurse only six weeks.

I am sure I'll have lots of frustrating shifts, but I was so gratified to be thanked by my patients. I love :redbeathe being a nurse.:nurse:
