    Gave up an LVN job.

    I was working as an LVN at a LTC didn't finish my probation period. I gave this job up for a government job at a military base as a clinical coordinator tomorrow is my first day and i am so nervous i hope that i gave up LTC for something that will stay at for a long time only problem is this job is more administrative duties keep in mind i am a new grad.. so i am very nervous i will setting up a new program for soldiers called teleconference. I am nervous that at this job i will loose my nursing skills i don't Evan wear scrubs. So basically i would like advice the benefits that this job offers are awesome the pay is good but will this be good for me as a New Grad? and if not should i look elsewhere i just want a stable job.

    Failed the nclex the 2nd time... feeling down

    The feeling of not passing the NCLEX is a terrible feeling, i too failed my test the first time and it was awful passed the second time.. but do not give up keep taking it, as soon as u receive your license the failed experience will not even come to mind think positive keep studying hard! and you will pass. Second time i reviewed my weak areas and use alot of online question similar to nclex and just took alot of practice tests.. Good Luck, you will pass!

    Can't deal with it anymore

    I feel exactly the same way, your thrad is similar to mine called "4 weeks feels like 4 years" i dread my job as well everyday i go in i dont have a smile but anxiety and nerves i am always thinking omg i hope i did it right and i dont mess up constantly i have never been like this before ever! but my first year of nursing is tearing me up! its awful i fully understand your circumstance, there is no point in dreading our jobs we have to stick to it and hope this is first years nerves we will eventually find out if were we are is not for us then we must find elsewhere to work because nursing is my passion i love patients and residents and im sure you are the same way but LTC is not for me,..... message me anytime. If you ever need to vent about your day please do so because we are going through similar hurdles. .taking it day by day.

    First 4 weeks feels like 4months

    My orientation was 3 weeks if i remember correctly. The med pass isnt really my biggest problem i can honestly knock the med pass out fairly well, buut as far as the paperwork and documentatoin and administration is a completely different thing. I still dread going into work its is awful for me, i feel that at anytime someone is going to tell me "ok you have to go home" im not sure why i feel this way people tell me I'm doing fine but i do not like it not one bit. I am truly learning that the first year of nursing is hard! im working another job and i dont feel this way at all i like my on-call job im happy when i go and get out of work is fine, but LTC deff not... its so upsetting bc i need te experience to go out elsewhere. My plan is to stick it out for 6 months then carry on somewhere else because its not working out for me..

    does it really get better?

    I feel your pain.. when i first started my med pass i got the hang of it it almost cam naturally but as far as the documentation new admits, discharges, and transfers.. it takes me so very long! and i still cant get through it without help from my co-workers. I too feel incompetent at times im on my own finished orientation 2-3 weeks ago and i still get stuck, but i always ask and thank god i found someone that was willing to help... i dont feel like LTC is for me, im currently looking for another full time position so i can give a 2 week notice because i feel so overwhelmed and stressed i cant take it. If this LTC is indeed for you im sure u will get the hang of it and yes as far as med pass you will get familiar with the meds of your residents and eventually know it like the back of your hand. First year of nursing is hard but we all must go through it. Hang in there dont give up.. dont worry about the nurses lounging, get your med pass done and take your time.

    First 4 weeks feels like 4months

    My orientation is over and now i am on the med cart. I do not like LTC everyday i go to work i dont go in with a smile but i love the residents as far as the job i paperwork. I fear for my license b/c of the fact that i am a new grad w/ no experience and need help with documentation and paperwork. I honestly cry when i come home, i believe this job is not for me I have a heart of gold and absolutely love the residents and I hardly ever see them because of the paperwork and documentation i feel that in LTC this is what its like i want patient interaction and have a smile on my face when driving to work not worried, anxiety, decreased sleep... I'm just so sad because nursing is what i love but this job in not working for me. Is this a common symptom of first year of nursing?
