I have posted several times with great responses regarding my situation as a new hire/new grad neuro ICU nurse. I have given it my all, worked extremely hard to meet expectations, but bottom line, after 4 months,is that the majority of the time I am told I am not providing "good patient care" or that I do not "see the big picture".
I meet with my DON today. I will request a transfer, but will prepare for the worst (termination or resignation). Any tips on what to say/not say in this meeting? At this point, it seems that the specifics don't even matter. I have been in an environment of anticipated failure from the beginning. No matter how far I have come, how much I have learned, and how willing I am to do it, it has never been enough. (see previous posts).
Also would appreciate your advice regarding what to ask of my DON. A referral? Advice? Or should I just say thank you very much for everything and best of luck?
I never thought it would come to this, but it has. I have never worked so hard only to be viewed as unsuccessful.
