Ok.....what would you do in this situation?
I have been going through my orientation for the past 6 weeks and I still have 6 more weeks to go. So the charge nurse comes up to me the other night and asks me how long until I feel like I would be able to be on my own. I tell her "My orientation is 12 weeks and I still don't feel comfortable yet taking a full assignment by myself." Her reply was "Well, you're doing well so would 2 more weeks be enough?" To which I say "Uh....no. I told you that I don't feel comfortable yet." Well, I think I must have pi***d her off because we just got the next schedule and I am off of orientation in 3 weeks.
How should I handle this? I don't want to rock the boat too much since I am still new but I certainly don't want to keep my mouth shut. I want the 12 weeks and to feel comfortable.
Any advice would be much appreciated.
