I’m no longer a new nurse. Things have changed. I’m changed. And that’s a good thing. Below is who I used to be…someone that I used to know. It’s different now. But never forget your roots. Mine are below.
This is the story of a new nurse navigating the road to success and competency on the floor of a cardiology unit at a large metro hospital. It is about successes, failures and the realization that this is for real. I moved cross-country, out of the warmth of SW to the rain-soaked paradise of the Great Northwest, back home, back to my roots. I packed up my wife, 2 crazy cats and all of our worldly belongings into a 16 foot UHaul, all to start anew. This is my story. And I’m sticking to it.
