I'm a new grad and just accepted a night position on a med/surg tele floor. I start orientation in a couple of weeks, then I have a 4 week preceptorship on a learning floor, and then my 3 month (?) orientation to the tele floor I'll be working on.
Cardiac was my weak point in school and I eventually want to work in ICU, so I figured I'd learn a lot and turn my weakness into a strength by taking this position... However, I do not want to come on and be completely blindsided and overwhelmed, which I'm sure happens as a new nurse anyway.
Do you all have any advice for a new grad coming onto a telemetry unit? Anything that will help me come onto the floor more prepared, ready to go, etc.
