Would like some positive feedback on Med-surg nursing. I am now on orientation, and will be working the 7/70 schedule. That is 7 nocs, 10 hour shifts and then 7 nocs off. I am used to 2nd shift so this will be an adjustment. Have been hearing some negative comments on Med-Surg, and sure would like to hear from those of you who like your positions. I guess I just need some inspiration! Also, can you give me some pointers on how to get along well with preceptors? I know its not everyone's favorite thing to do, and I have had a bad exp. in the past with this. Thanks for your help, I appreciate it.

$hit I just finished 4 twelves and am half asleep sitting here at the PC. Good luck with 7 tens, sounds rough but like mspurp said you know if your body and sanity can handle it. But the 7 off would be wonderful!
Oh, precepting...............if you have a good one, let him/her teach you, even if you know what they are telling you LISTEN, it maybe a better more efficient way to get the job done.
