I'm ending my first month off orientation and what I am struggling with is moving from being task oriented to being able to see the big picture on my shift. My time management has already improved, which makes me hugely pleased; I know I have a long way to go, but at least now I remember to bring the blunt when I have to give heparin! At this point, I spend my entire shift going from job to job, and have a really hard time putting it all together, if that makes sense.
I see lots of responses on time management taking at least 4-6 months to really click, but what about the rest of the job, the being able to look at all the jobs, the labs, the little tasks, and putting that into play? How did you get there?
