I need a mentor/friend

  1. I am 24 yrs. I have been working as an RN now for 3 months. It seems as though my life has changed so drastically since completeing my nursing education and starting my new job. My personal life.

    At times, I have so many different emotions. I am happy about my job, confident I made the right decision, and then I am worried and feel pressured in my personal life. My new career has given me amazing opportunities, but I feel like my personal life holds me back. I just wish I had another experienced nurse friend to talk to.

    I don't want to have this type of relationship with someone I work with... I LOVE everyone that I work with, but I feel that I would not want to share intimate details of my life with someone I work with.

    To SOMEWHAT give you an idea of the type of issues I am dealing with, here is the link to another thread I posted a while ago.

    I would LOVE to exchange emails with a knowledgeable, experienced nurse. Experienced in life and nursing. :spin:

    Please PM me if you would be interested.

    I'm sorry you're still struggling hon. I hope you will keep posting here!

    I will certainly post w/ you but I am not an active nurse right now. I definitely recommend a spiritual approach to any problem, though! If you want more info just PM me!
