    No thats not right. I just started on a medsurg floor and I am going to get 6 full weeks of training with a preceptor so that I can actually be prepared to be on my own. So sorry to hear that you are not being trained the way they should be training you. Have you spoken to your director? You should mention to her that you don't feel safe to be on the floor by yourself with not too much training. I hope it all works out
