The charge nurse experience

After two days of charge nurse training, I was immediately scheduled to become the practicing charge nurse.
It was the AM shift. A very busy shift because it is the shift when doctors make their rounds and write orders. It is also the shift where more of the lab work ups are done.
I was bombarded by so many doctor's orders: written, verbal and per telephone. There are so many lab work ups to do. I had so much on my plate and I was really nervous to miss carrying out any orders.

It was a tiring day but somehow, I managed to get through it. Thanks to my preceptor.
