Just wanted to vent about my grad program at the moment or my stage at the moment of the grad program. I work in Cardiac and I am getting fustrated with my time management. I only have a 4 pt load and still struggle, pretty much doing documentation up to finishing time. Another part of frustration is that I do ask alot of questions because I want to be sure and most of the time just dont know the answer. I sense botherness from team leaders but I thought, no I have to ask or else I may do something wrong. Others commend the questions but when u do ask, its like they are bothered or label me as though I just dont know anything. Well its true, and for the seedling that needs to grow, you need to water it. So that analogy should always be thought of, I need to grow and would like others to have the patience.
I have thought about if all doesnt work out in the next 4 months I am considering a change to another ward, where I feel I can cope. I hope within th next four months that such idea might change and my time management and knowledge spruce up.
Anyways thats my vent

I precept alot and I would rather you ask, then do something & find out it that it was a major mistake. I don't trust people who try to force there way thru. My advice keep asking, talk to your clinical educator, maybe u need a new peceptor. NOt everyone clicks personality wise. Worse case scenario they will stear you to a new floor, rather than lose a staff member. I had one nurse who had no self confidence. It took alot of patience but she is now one of the best nurses I know. Hang in there.
Time mangaement comes w experience, stop comparing yourself to some of your peers.
