Haven't really thought about palliative care.. I'll look into it.. Thanks so much
Hi I'm a working nurse.. and I am so grateful to have a job.. I tried med Surg, psych and tele.. but what I really want is to do counseling or teaching.. I am great in making patients feel good and better by talking to them, most of them said that I have a great bedside manner and care.. but I'm done.. I want to leave bedside behind.. at the end of the day my body hurts I don't get enough sleep and just crash.. not enough time for my kids due to being soo tired.. so now what I do need for experienced nurses can you guys give me some advice where to go to next.. A nursing area where I can still use my brain but no more bed side care.. No teaching for nursing students either.. thank you so much and God bless.. PS to the nurses who loves bedside and is been doing that for years.. YOU GUYS ROCK
i had to quit coz of my preceptor.. we're on the same boat ride.. she made my orientation a living hell.. never learned a thing from her.. she made me so anxious i felt like vomiting all the time.. my brain couldn't function with her. i was so scared to go to work.. there were times that i will have an opportunity to work with a different nurse coz she was on break and i would do just fine.. i was able to do my job without the feeling of my chest about to explode.. but once she returns I'm back to being a total wreck. for short she ruined me. i tried to switch preceptors but manager wouldn't do it. so the situation got so bad.. had to go.. tsk. sad
I too just resigned after a couple of weeks due to being treated badly by my preceptor.. i guess nurses do eat their young. hopefully we could get another job
from a psychrn to med surg I feel like I'm drowning.. I just want to punch my self in the face too frustrated. wish you both luck hopefully u guys will do better.. coz I failed
I'm new too and I feel like I'm drowning and dying every single day.. I care for 5 pt everyday and the sucky part is that I still et transfers urgh
thank you so much esme.. Yep a year then I'm out.. I'm hoping to find a hospital were I can work for a lOng time.. until I retire.. I want to be able to say I've been working here for 35 years now and I love it! Hehe
welcome to healthcare? Seriously is this how nurses act? I was told before I entered the said profession that nurses are professional.. it's just surprising that's all.
I don't say much at work and I try to be really nice and friendly.. although I'm stressed out I try to keep my attitude in check. so I don't think I'm sending of negative vibes or energy towered them.. they react as if I killed a patient when I don't get to do things right away. Im trying my best that's all I can say. one day I'll be good at it that's a promise I made to myself. I just need the exp then I'm out of that hospital. I cannot work with unprofessional people. enough said thank you very much
being new to a job that you have no experience at all is already hard and stressful enough.. but working with people who's downright mean and unprofessional?? OMG i hate them thats all i can say.. i just ignore them even though i know that they talk bad about my performance.. "hello I'm new!!" it's like your trying to tell a first grader to run track as fast as hs seniors..
it makes me sad that they so look down on me that they forgot that they were once in my shoe.. It's not like I'm not trying my best. there's so much too learn, it's not like I'm going to learn everything in a day. I'm already so overwhelmed and stressed out jeez
have any of you experienced this too?
a mont of orientation and still not able to finish everything on time.. I try my best everyday at work I really do, but I always fallhort. I'm so ashamed and frustrated already.. today my brain just stoped functioning literally I couldn't think straight anymore I had so many overdue task and upcoming tasks people asking me questions to answers that I don't know doctors calling me patients need me not done chartig not done with meds.. etc etc that I just broke into tears.. I stepped out of the unit I couldn't take it anymore. preceptor not helping at all major stressor if I say so myself. I still have a week with him. anyways I just wanted to barge into y managers office and say I quit but deep in my heart no matter how hard this thing that I'm going through I couldn't give up.. hate the thought that I gave up I quit.. although it's taking a toll out of me already. Physically emotionally and mentally. starting to think that I'm stupid for not knowing alot of things. Med surg is just too much couldn't stop crying. I hate it with a passion but I hate the thought of giving up even more.
I did that once. I asked my preceptor about something.. She asked me a question in front if my pt. I told her I was meaning to ask her about it but never had an opportunity because I was so busy. she did not answer my question. Made me look dumb in front of the pt. My heart just sank
I graduated 8 years ago but de to personal issues I was unable to work until recently.. I know it's a blessing but with what I'm going through right now feels like it's not..
no I'm still not on my own.. And my preceptor is not pretty happy with me.. sucks being a new grad like employee when you graduated 8 years ago. I feel like crying I'm so frustrated and disappointed with my self
I get super anxious because of my job. I'm new and med surg floor scares me a lot. although I try my best. I'm too slow compared to the old employees.. I know the prob is that I have limited knowledge when it comes to med surg and the solution us to read more.. but I get so nervous and anxious I can't concentrate. I'm all over the place.. my brain is all over the place.. my anxiety level is rising up super fasts The day before my job I get palpitations my chest starts to hurt and I have difficulty breathing.. I'm so anxious and scared to go to work. scared to screw things up.. scared to make mistakes that it makes me do more mistakes. I don't want to give up because I don't want people to think that I'm a quitter plus I need the experience and the money. but I think I'm getting worse.. it's been more than a month and instead of getting better I'm actually getting worse. my anxiety level is not getting any better.. this sucks so bad makes me want to cry
