    I have been a nurse for 23 yrs seen some good changes and some more recent changes to the field that are not so good. Always remember, Check your attitude and personal life at the door when you punch in for your shift. Always think of the pt as one of your love ones or yourself and how you would want to be treated. Listen to your pts you just met them 5 minutes ago and most likely they know their bodies better than you! Most of all when it gets to the point you dont love going to you job every day GET OUT, because at that point you are not doing anyone a favor. Good lUck from an old timer! Who has been there and done that and has the wore out scrubs to prove it!

    May the force be with you, my new friend,trust your self and your thoughts and do not be afraid to ask questions for that is how you learn new things I have been a nurse for about 30 years and am still asking questions!

    Good luck and congratulations to all the new grad RNs! Read Theresa Lowry's words of wisdom above. There's a lot of truth in what she says. I've got 15 years in the trenches myself, and I couldn't have put it any better.
