Alright so I have been on a med-surg unit for several months now just right out of nursing school
. I had been having issues with time management since my original orientation, but it seems as though I did not get the type of specific feedback that I needed that would have been helpful to me. So a few months after my first orientation I have been put back on orientation to strengthen my time management skills. I very much appreciate this second chance to improve (I feel it is a blessing to even get another chance), however the conditions are that improvement must be made for me to continue working in my current position.
What I am getting concerned about is that I am doing all I can and giving my best efforts (giving 100%/giving my all) to improve now that I have gotten the feedback that I really need. I understand the feedback, tips, and advice that I have received now, but with my best efforts to follow through, work hard, and meet the goals for improvement it has been determined that not enough progress has been made yet during the two weeks that I have been back on orientation and so additional time has been given.
I have been seriously thinking about the time I have spent so far in med-surg and I am starting to feel that perhaps a med-surg floor is not the area for me. I can stick it out to the end with my best efforts which is what I have already been doing, but again I am concerned about whether med-surg is for me.
Any advice, suggestions, or words of wisdom would be very much appreciated.
