    New Grad NP feeling Overwhelmed, Scared

    I'm graduating from a FNP program in 10 weeks. I don't really have any advice but just wanted to say, I'm feeling much of what you're feeling. Hugs.
  3. So sorry you're going through this. I've been there and its horrible. Anxiety to the max. They extended my orientation to 20 weeks when I was a new grad because I struggled with time management. I went on to work 8 years at the bedside, often as a charge nurse, and now I'm almost done with my FNP program. Doesn't sound like a very supportive work environment and, as a new grad, the need for support extends beyond the orientation period. My only advise: You might be better off somewhere else. This is not ideal as you just started this job. So, put in your time and then get out. Don't take their criticism too personally. It can destroy your spirit. Try to learn from it. The delivery might suck but the feedback might be good.

    Hey, Depaul MENP graduates...

    Whoops, the "NP" in the degree title threw me off. Thanks for the clarification. :)
  5. Can't think of a nice response so I'll just say thanks...

    Hey, Depaul MENP graduates...

    I'm not keen on school debt. I did a BS in another field, then an ADN, then a BSN, and now I'm in a MSN program for NP. I haven't accumulated any school debt via this route. In my opinion, nursing experience is extremely key to becoming a well-rounded, respected NP. Skipping that component seems risky to me. I think the best NPs are the ones with a few years of nursing experience before becoming a NP but I have never met a MENP grad. Kind of seems like you'd come out kind of green like the most of the PAs I see. The NPs I've worked with did a few years in the trenches before becoming a NP and hit the ground running once they became a NP. It does have some major appeal though because hospital nursing is very hard and this MENP route is quicker. No school debt and wanted to get a decent amount of nursing experience before becoming a NP is the reason I chose the route I did. Best of luck to you!

    I Fear for the Future of Nursing

    Yup, it pretty much sucks. I wanted to break a wine bottle (by shattering on my concrete patio) after a shift last week. It was a low point, to say the least. I did not proceed with the deed. I slammed a cabinet instead and felt better. I would never hurt a living being (I dropped a spider off at the forest preserve once), I feel better after I throw things though. This is why I'm in grad school. Can't do this much longer.

    That Dreaded 3-11 Shift

    Or, at my hospital, days holds onto their discharges and leaves the discharges for the 3-11 nurses. So, you get to discharge 3 or 4 patients at the beginning of your shift, while an admission is rolling up. One of the main reasons I can't stand 3-11. Also, I feel like I have no life. Can't fall asleep until 3 am. Need at least 8 hours of sleep. Wake up at 11 am. Eat breakfast, work out. Head back to work. Repeat times 5.

    Butter, ice cream, and baseball

    Glad to hear others are asking the question! :) Would the 2 oz make a nurse impaired? If not, sign me up! Tomorrow's breakfast: ice cream (melted butter on top) with a glass of orange juice wine and a chocolate for dessert. YUM.

    Hilarious, great idea. Saline lock when tolerating large chunks of butter PO.
