    Every nurse remembers that first day. Wide eyed and nervous. On my first day as a nurse I had not 1 but 2 patients pass away on my shift. What crazy things happened on your first shift as a nurse?

    My first day at work, the nurses forgot to tell me that one of the chairs were no good. So I pick that one chair to sit in and guess what? I fell out of the chair and hit the back of my head on the concrete floor. The other nurses helped and make sure I was ok before they broke out laughing.


    I remember dropping every IV bag I had to hang and feeling like a complete failure but that’s it.
