Hey Bonnie, I've been working as a nurse for about a year and a half now and have worked in two different inpatient facilities, so I hear you about feeling completely overwhelmed at first. I got very stressed and anxious at both places when I first started working on my own after orientation. I also asked a LOT of questions (I think to the annoyance of my co-workers). My best advice to you is to give yourself some time to get used to things. One month is not a very long time at any job. I have been working in long-term care and rehab, so the setting is a little different, but in both places it took me about 5-6 months before I started to feel like I was really settling in and getting the hang of things. At least on days you have more nurses and staff around and probably the manager, which means more support for you. Personally, I think you should give yourself a little more time and don't be too hard on yourself.
