    Different options

    I've been an RN working at a rehab/LTC facility for a year now and it's just not the field I want to be in. Sometimes I think it's just the field and other times I think it's nursing as a whole. I don't want to give up on nursing but I'm not sure what else to do. I've been thinking a lot lately about OB but there's not very many openings from where I am. I feel burnt out and irritated a lot of the time and I'm just not sure what to do anymore. Any advice would be nice

    New RN having the worst time

    My orientation was like a week. And I was on my own for a night of it because someone called out.

    New RN having the worst time

    Hey guys, So I've been at my new job about a month now and I can honestly say I feel like the stupidest person out there. I work in a nursing home giving out meds and doing skin assessments and things like that. Multiple people have been telling me a nursing home is no place for a new RN because you don't learn anything. Which I understand but I thought it would be a good place to get my feet wet. But being here for a month still makes me feel like I know absolutely nothing. Anything that comes up like a patient complaining of difficulty urinating or someone who has a skin tear I feel like I have no idea how to handle it and I go ask the other RN for advice. I honestly feel like I don't know anything and I'm not confident in making a judgement call on my own. Even about something as small as a skin tear. I feel like I'm a bad nurse and I'm being annoying asking the other nurses advice. Its like everything I learned in school just went out the window and I have no idea what I'm doing. Anyway I just wanted to be able to vent to someone and hopefully get some advice or feedback..

    Nursing and significant others

    Hey guys So I started my first nursing job last week and I really like it. Funny because it was a field I didn't think I would want to go into at all. But I'm working the night shift (10-6). I have a boyfriend and we've been together for 2 years. He works a day shift and honestly I'm kind of worrying and wondering about if any of you guys have been on opposite shifts of your significant other and how it went. I'm just worried I won't get to see him as often as I would like. For a long time we spent every day together. But since I got this job we're going to be in different schedules and ill be working every other weekend as well. I guess I'm just asking for advice on how to manage the different schedules. Thanks

    First job

    Hi guys, I'm starting my first ever nursing job next week. Its in a nursing home and I'm extremely nervous. I had a rough last semester in school with my clinical teacher telling me I couldn't be a nurse. Anyway I graduated and got my license despite what he said. Now I've gotten my first job and I'm extremely nervous that he's going to be right and I won't be able to do it. I'm a pretty shy person and I'm worried that's going to affect the kind of nurse I'm going to be. I just wanted some first day advice for a brand new RN.
