I started working in a pediatric ED last year. I have been a nurse for eight months now and I still find articles for new nurses relevant (“Surviving Your First Code,” Transition to Practice, July). I ask a million and one questions if I have a case that I am not thoroughly familiar with, and I have found a way to be comfortable with that.

This article is very useful! I dreaded my first code and now I love being involved in all the action. Overall, it is important to know that being a new nurse is dreadful (and you'll be a new nurse for a couple of years), but little by little you grow comfortable in your position.
