I started on a surgical oncology floor in January. My orientation lasted approximately 6 weeks, and then I was on my own. I know that I have learned a ton since nursing school as well as since my orientation started. However, I continually feel frustrated will everything I do not know. I go to work terrified that I am going to see something I do not understand or do not know how to do, and although a lot of the experienced nurses are great, I feel like I am constantly bugging them to ask questions or ask for help. After my shifts I go home and worry about doing everything I needed to do, charting what I needed to chart... etc.
Does anyone have any advice on coping with being a new nurse on a high-stress floor? What can I do to be able to go home and not worry about my day on the floor? I'm terrified that I'm not pulling my weight on the floor because of everything I am unsure of.
