I survived my first three-day-in-a-row stint at work. And I had lots of fun discharging my patients yesterday. I totally remembered how to do it from my externship, and my preceptor was surprised when I took the reigns and did it without even asking her. In reality, I can feel myself sort of kicking against all the supervision. I just want to do my job, and ask questions when I need to ask questions.
I'm learning a lot about how to deal with pain, and how to get pain dealt with. It's not a joke when people are in pain, and it's important to get it taken care of immediately. I feel like I'm growing a lot more, a lot faster, during my orientation than I ever did in nursing school. This is fun!
