It is unfortunate you had to start your career during a pandemic. I am not a new grad, been working for about 4 yrs and it is overwhelming to me. Initially I was upset my unit was transformed to Covid, but I had to put everything aside and think of the patient. I had a few new nurses on my floor (they had already finished orientation), two of them are doing well but the other had to take a leave of absence due to constant panic attacks. I am not quite sure what your situation is, but I encourage you to use it as a learning experience. Do your best and always always treat the patient with dignity and respect. You will be pleasantly surprise what this means to them. Take time for yourself; get adequate rest, stay hydrated and please always ask for help if you need it. Be safe.
