I am 19 years old and I got my LPN license 2 months ago. I'm having a lot of trouble. First off no one respects me. I'm soft spoken. The Aids and other nurses walk all over me. I work 16 hour shifts over the weekends and am charge nurse. I'm responsible for 30 patients. I am overwhelmed but i need the weekend doubles because I'm going to school and I have a son. I need the week to study and c my kid. Between fatigue and having 30 people with multiple needs I keep leaving holes in my documentation. The doctors say I don't give them enough information over the phone or prompt enough. I try to look up things before hand, but it feels like I just can't get it right. I have been sat down with my boss twice now. she hasn't written me up yet. But I'm worried I'm going to loose my job. Every time I think I'm doing things right. It turns out that nothing I did was right. I'm trying so hard, sometimes I just don't feel old enough or smart enough to be a nurse. I keep having to ask questions and i think the other nurses are getting irritated. I'm a slow learner and am having a hard time catching onto things. I have low self confidence and feel inadequate in everyway. Any advice?
