New graduate nurse Renee asks:
I am a new nurse just starting my first job. Working with some nurses, I feel I can do this. However, a couple of nurse preceptors get upset when I don’t know all the answers and treat me like I am incompetent. They tell other people behind my back, that I’m stupid. This decreases my self confidence. I have worked so hard to get here. I want to succeed and someday, guide new graduate nurses like me. Sometimes I feel so lost and doubt myself. Have I been out of school too long? Maybe I wasn’t meant to be a nurse? When I ask other nurses these questions, they say “Keep trying. You will get it.” What can I do?
