As a new RN, I got hired for a position in an ICU stepdown unit. I am very interested in working in this unit. I was told that I would spend around 4 weeks on the med/surg/tele floor to get a feel for the place and then spend the next 2 months going through preceptorship in the stepdown. I am a couple of weeks into the med/surg part. My preceptor told me today that she thinks that I will be moved into the med/surg area instead because they hired too many people for the other unit. I asked to see my schedule for the upcoming months and it shows me doing an additional week in M/S and only 2 in the stepdown. Can they just switch your position like that? Has anyone else experienced this? My unit manager has not talked to me about this yet, but I want to be prepared if it comes to pass.
I seriously do not want to work on this floor F/T.
