I totally get where you are coming from, in a way anyhow. I have been a nurse (non-stop) for 13 years. I worked on an extremely busy tele/surgical unit for 8 years, did ortho/surgical for a bit, cashed in during the agency boom where I learned ICU/CCU, peritoneal dialysis, ER, etc. I've even got LTC and supervisory/charge/mgt experience.
ALL of that experience, you'd think I know what I am doing...but, RARELY can I get thru one shift without some "newer" nurse trying to school me on a policy, procedure, med time, order, etc. I put up for it for a while, just laughing at how eager some of these young ladies
are, and I'd really LOL when their patient would code or have an emergency of some sort leaving me to fix the issue/call the code/start CPR while they stand there and look like a deer stuck in the headlights.
As far as comp. charting goes, I HATE IT. Paper charting all the way for me...but, thanks to the US gov't that is total history. Just keep your head up, do some practice charting on your day off (if you can log on at home, even better) and realize that when you went to nursing school
YOU learned how to take care of your patient, not how to DELEGATE every nit-picking little thing to the PCA that you can. It will come back to you, work on your time management. If you aren't getting lunch, that is your "mentor's" fault. Do things the way you used to do them before you took time off. If after 6 months you still hate it, then find another job somewhere else. If you have not yet gotten it, GET YOUR BSN. Even us "seasoned" nurses have to have it...
