I am kind of freaking out. I went to a great nursing school
, and actually did clinicals where I now work, but its a whole new world actually being an RN. The floor, newborn nursery, is in a real state of chaos right now. A new nurse manager, lots of people leaving, short staffed etc.
I sent an email to the interim nurse manager, expressing my concerns about the short orientaion, and saying I was not comfortable taking more than 6 babies, and she said that she would ensure that I would be given 6 or less for that week, and have the new clincial education coordinator meet with me. Well less than a week later I was given 8, and still have not heard from educator.
I know I need to contact the nurse manager again, but I dont know what to say. I can't afford to quit, but I'm afraid that its unsafe.
