I am on an absolute high right now as I am writing this (natural high obviously)!
I just got home from work (feels so weird to say work haha) and I've seriously had the best day and week for that matter. Today I took one patient and it was SO WEIRD being able to give meds on my own, plus everything else that comes with caring for a patient.
I found myself continuously checking in with my preceptor as if I was a student because honestly, it still doesn't feel like I'm an RN. I feel like a student playing dress ups in scrubs...
There has been so much support this week with regular education sessions and plenty of opportunity to share experiences with the other grads. Honestly, I could not be happier with my preceptor, ward and literally everyone I have worked with. I'm so excited about work and life right now it's hard to type because I'm so full of energy and happiness!
As of next week I am taking a full patient load with my preceptor still with me for a week or two then I'm solo! I'm so excited and not really that nervous because there is so much support and everyone is so friendly so I would be more than happy to clarify anything with my colleagues as I go. Wish me luck!
