  1. Hi all, So I'm a new nurse (been a RN for only 2 weeks, was a LPN for about 11 months prior). Last week I received a telephone order from a doctor to give a one time dose of Norco, but my patient didn't have any, so after asking another nurse what to do, I gave my patient another patient's Norco, against my better judgement. I charted in my patients medical record that I gave my patient the medication from patient's XYZ supply. I am TERRIFIED that I will lose my RN license because our annual is open for the state to come in. My boss said I wasn't losing my job, but we went over my reprocussions. Any words of advice or thoughts would be greatly appreciated, because I am losing sleep and I can't even eat because my stomach is in constant knots.
