Starting any new job can make you feel nervous and unsure of your skills and qualifications. If you’ve been hired for the job that means that the hiring manager saw the necessary qualities and skills in you that are needed to perform well.

That alone should be a confidence booster. Gaining confidence in a new hospital job may take a little time. Hospitals are fast paced, sometimes tense medical environments. It takes some getting used to for nurses who haven’t worked long in this particular type of facility.

Seek out coworkers who can offer assistance and advice, and who are willing to help you feel more at ease in your new position.
