Becoming a brand new RN is difficult for most, but usually employees and management help you through the difficult time and it gets easier. I can definitely tell you that it'll get easier, but it takes time (way more than three months) depending on which dept you're in. I would consider looking for a different job before you are terminated. I went straight to ICU and it took a good two years of solid full time experience before I was comfortable with all of the procedures we do at the bedside and taking care of crashing patients. I also had wonderful co-workers to bounce ideas off of. Good luck with whatever you decide!
