    New grad looking for some advice

    Hello, I am hoping to get some advice. I started my first nursing job in August of this year. I currently work on a adult Med Surg floor (rotated between 3 different units) at a level 1 trauma hospital in a difficult area. Needless to say, the hospital acuity is pretty challenge. I try my best navigate, but not only do I feel extremely overwhelmed at all times, my heart really isn’t in it. I don’t enjoy going, in fact I dread it. I truly feel like nursing isn’t for me, but I also know it’s FAR too early to really make that decision. I am trying my best to get through that first year, but I can’t help but feel that adult care is not for me. I don’t know if 6 months would be too early to switch and I would be doing myself a disservice? As of now, I feel like my life is on hold for this job. I want to find my niche because I know when I do I’ll put my heart and soul into it, but as of now I feel very lost. I want to work in community health nursing, but I know that experience is critical. I also feel like i would like to work with babies. I’m scared to change and then realize the grass wasn’t greener on the other side. Has anyone felt this way and have advice?
