I am a little confused on what is expected from a new grad. I had my first day on a pediatric observation unit and I was surprised about my perceptor. I worked the 7p-7a shift. She expected me to take on 3 patients. I reminded her this is my very first day and I would like to shadow her today so I can get an idea how things are done. She said well if you have any questions just ask me. I felt like I was thrown to the wolves. I didn't get a chance to speak to my educator yet. She would be a good preceptor for someone with alot of experience already. On top of it all she is also hard of hearing. I know things will get better and I would not do anything I was unsure of but I was just surprised of her attitude. Has anyone else had this bad first day experience? I have different preceptors in the upcoming weeks.
