New grad, just now on day 5 of being on my own after a month of hospital orientation. I am experiencing extreme anxiety from thinking about all the overwhelming responsibilities and trying to deal with sensory overload. I feel like I am a terrible nurse and not meeting all my patients needs. I constantly worry about patients wellbeing because I am forgetful and have trouble focusing on one task at a time. My grad RN friends do not seem to be struggling as badly, this worries me. I am a calm quiet person and questioning whether the hospital enviroment is too much for someone like me. I have been told getting a year worth of clinical experience is essential to being successful in a more independent enviroment like homecare. I do not want to give up so quickly, but am struggling trying to decide if this is where I belong.
Any advice or anyone else have similar feelings?
