When school is finished


Specializes in Cardiovascular Critical Care. Has 4 years experience.

I just want to make sure what I'm feeling is normal and I'm not totally incompetent. I worry a lot about when I've graduated passed my boards and am working....does anyone really feel prepared when they are a brand new nurse? I know it is impossible to know how to handle every situation and that there is a ton of learning that still takes place after graduation. I just worry I'm going to miss something or forget something or just in general totally screw up. I study hard, consistently get A's and B's but am I really going to know what I'm doing when I'm the nurse?
