I am so excited. I just started my first nursing job on a Cardiac/Stepdown floor in a regional medical center. I am currently in my second week of orientation and next week will start working with a preceptor. So far I have spent a total of 10 hours on the floor. I am very disheartened by the fact that I will have somewhere between 8-10 different preceptors while I am being trained. I have found so far that it is necessary to ask a lot of questions because the nurses don't seem too interested in training. I would like to go through training with a good idea of how to treat the patients that we see. Common patients are post cardiac-cath, post MI, CHF, and arrhythmias. Does anyone have any suggestions on books to read and how to get the most from my variety of preceptors? I would greatly appreciate it.
