Two more weeks of orientation/preceptorship then apparently on 8/27 we are set out on our own.
Now that really scares me more than sitting thru the NCLEX. There's still so much to learn. Still so tired. I was in bed by 8 p.m. last night and I think I fell asleep around 8:30. Actually, I'm looking forward to my regular schedule of working 24 h/week rather than 40! I'm a bit too old for this. :spin:
Hi Suzy, :icon_hug: :icon_hug:
Please, please remember that you are not off on your own!! There are more experienced nurses available to you. I always tell t he new RN's that I precept, that just because orientation is over, doesn't mean that you won't have questions!! I urge them to ask anything that they want--we were all new at one time--it's OK to ask MANY questions. After 40 yrs, I STILL ask questions!!
In fact, there is one new RN on day shift & he is always so apprehensive about the shift & I try to reassure him that it's perfectly OK to ask questions--no one will think less of him!!
PLEASE -- If there is anything to remember from orientation--it's that it is always OK to ask!!
Good Morning to All of you PEEPS!!
I'm still at work. It's been quite a busy nite!! And, not over yet!! At 0700, we have a staff mtg--but at least, we wrote our report out--cuts down on that nasty OVERTIME, you know!!
I'll be off Thurs and Fri nite!! But work the weekend.
Nothing special planned for my days!!
Hope you all have a wonderful day!!
My prayers to all of you who have asked.
I haven't had any real time to watch the news--but from what you all say, it isn't good news!!
See you all later
