    I also wanted to add that to use your cnas to your advantage. They are your eyes and ears on the floor , help them and they will return the favor. It's impossible to check all the v/s while doing med pass , that's why you can delegate these task to your cna but make sure they are competent in checking v/s first. They will apply the creams and lotions for you if they feel you are a team player and not just a pushy nurse. Best of luck in your career and it gets better.

    Irene it will get better. I was in your shoes once , new grad at a facility with only 3 day orientation facing the same problems. Was floated around dif floors with 40 pts only I as charge nurse and an RN supervisor who was gone most of the time on other floors. After 6 weeks you should be getting your routine down pack , buy a notepad to plan out the day and when to do your finger sticks , med pass , treatments ect. By the time you know it everything is done with time to document. The issues you described bothered me as well and I applied to a better facility and was hired having obtained experience. Protecting your license is important gain your 6 months experience and look elsewhere , these places have high turnover and don't care for retaining quality nurses just having someone to cover their short staffing.
