22 things I learned in my first year as an RN

18. If you’re caught up, ask your coworkers if they need help (see #5).

19. When you have an opportunity to learn something new, take it (see #5).

20. When you have an opportunity to teach something new, take it (see #5).

21. If you clean your stethoscope with a bleach wipe after using it on a patient with c.diff, MAKE SURE you let it dry before you put it around your neck again (don’t worry, after you’ve accidentally bleached your scrubs once or twice you’ll never forget again).

22. Nursing is an art, a science, a way of life, and a privilege.
