Congrats on finishing school!
I graduated a year ago and felt so dumb! I was accepted into a ER nurse residency program, 3 months classroom/clinical then 3 months with a preceptor, and I felt like I learned nothing in school! After awhile you learn so much and it becomes second nature. Even after a year there are things that I dont understand or remember. You just look it up or ask someone. One of the best things about where I work is that I have many go-to people who I can ask any type of question.

I too am now saying GOODBYE to student land.

As of last Friday I finished all my requirements and will graduate at the beginning of December. It feels a bit odd, as I have been working as a nurse (lower grade) for a while now, it just feels like I have been going through the motions to get here. Anyway I get registered in about 3 weeks, just in time for Christmas.

Well done to you both. I am looking forward to hearing more from you as you move from being a student to being qualified RNs!

Smile thanks for becoming a nurse

welcome to the RN world. I agree with all the others. Congrats, well done and as PJ said be safe. For months after starting work I would wake up in the night in a panic having forgotten something (even really dumb unimportant things woke me I was so stressed). Make your shedule and list your work, prioritise it somehow, eg must be done, should be done, nice to do and as ABC in terms of patient airway breathing circulation, what I mean by that is the clinically unwell are higher up in the urgency/importance, and then be prepared to change it all as your patient's needs change.
You will get the hang of it
