I hate to say this but I love how it is always the preceptors fault that a new grad is having a hard time in orientation.....
Maybe not the preceptors, but once you are hired a hospital has invested a decent amount of money into you.
And if you were hired for 5+ weeks like the OP the hospital invested likely over 10,000$ into you.
So either they completely effed up in their hiring/screening/interviewing process, and hired someone who was completely incompetent.
Or they didn't put together a comprehensive organized orientation and training process, which resulted in a new grad failing.
Its certainly possible that a new grad is some combination of lazy and or stupid ( absolutely NOT talking about the OP, but in general). But then that would be on the hospital for doing a terrible job in their hiring process, hiring someone who is completely unqualified for the position.
im a HUGE proponent of personal responsibility.
But I also believe that every time a new grad sizzles and burns out it is ALWAYS at the fault of the hiring organization. And sometimes also at fault of the new grad themselves.
