Hi Everyone, I am a new grad nurse and I started in the NICU last August. It's been 5 months in this Unit and they have been miserable. I love babies however as a new grad I don't feel like I am learning anything. Every shift consists of cares and bottle feeds. I am never passing any meds because day shift does that and parents are never in to visit their babies so I am not even doing teaching part of it. Every shift is the same. It's repetitive. I am extremely unhappy and I wished that I had waited and applied to other units before accepting this position. Another down side of it is that I am working night shift and that has been impacting my mental health heavily. To get a day shift there is a year long waitlist. My fear is that if I quit my current job I won't be able to another job because of this. I honestly dread going into work. I am not happy at all. I literally go in to complete my shift and leave. And because of this I want to quit and take a break until I figure out where I truly want to work.
