I've recently finished my BScN and accepted a job on a medical floor. I am waiting on my temporary license to start my orientation on the floor. I was told that my orientation would consist of being paired with a nurse for 4-6 weeks, however I have spoken to some other new grads who have started this week and although they were told the same thing, they were given full patient loads from the get-go, on their own. I am extremely nervous as this is a new facility for me, and not only is the job itself new, but different paperwork, equipment, and new responsibilities as well are making me feel overwhelmed and unprepared. Any advice?
