New Graduate Program -- The First Week

After completing my first week in my New Graduate RN program, I have come to realize a few things.


  1. I really enjoy the hospital, the staff, and the people. Despite starting out knowing no one, it was great meeting new people and getting to know them. I'm excited to work with them during our following weeks of training. The staff members seem really nice and happy to work for the hospital as well. 
  2. Despite living in Los Angeles County all my life (except the time I was in college and in nursing school), I never realized how horrible the traffic is in Los Angeles on a weekday morning and during "rush" hour. I guess it is probably because I do not really venture out that way to hang out with friends. And, after all, I did spend my college years in other cities and counties for school. The past week has only been a foreshadowing of the following weeks to come. I will basically have no "social" time, since I'll pretty much be sitting in traffic. And, by the time I get home, I only have enough time to eat, shower, and sleep before I repeat. 
  3. I cannot wait until night shift (if I get assigned the night shift...). It would be really awesome to be on the night shift...just so I won't have to fight traffic to and from work. Plus, with the time saved from fighting traffic, I can catch up on my television shows! Yay!
Wish me luck on this next week! It's a struggle, but it's worth it!
