I'm new to the ED. I came from ICU to ED and I feel new all over again. I have to regain different assessment skills, and not try to be so in depth with the patient. My preceptor says to get in and get out. Focus on the problem they came for, we are not their PCP. That is a hard adjustment for me since I like to focus on everything. It will take more than one year to feel confident in the ED in my opinion. Each day seems to get better though. Hang in there and give it a good, long try. Hold your head up, don't let others see you upset about things. Just thank them for helping you and move on. Pretty soon, you will be in that position where you are training another new nurse to the ED, and then you can remember how you felt "new" and not precept in that way.
