I just started on the unit of my dreams (MIU) or so I thought. Basically I have 1 year of womens health and now 4 months of experience on this unit. I really want to work with babies and at this point this is not happening (a lot of politics). I have been thrown off orientation rather quickly and my required paperwork for floor competencies is no where near being completed. I have requested to have learning opportunites only for them to be basically ignored. I have also requested meetings and this has not occurred either. (Currently I am PRN and work nights).
My question is bascially at this point I am not happy...I have been on this unit for about 4 months now and I am starting to dread going to work. The patient ratio is kind of stressful to me as well... 7 to 8. I have sent emails only for them to be ignored. I have never been treated this way before and am not understanding where it is coming from. I really feel like its time for me to look else where to find where I really belong at this point. This is a teaching hospital but they seem to want to teach what they want you to know but not necesarially what will assist me in becoming a more excellent and confident nurse.
I feel like I should have walked out the door when the NM got an attitude when I wouldn't agree that a conversation took place during my interview when I know it didn't. I hope that someone will be able to respond to my question and offer solid feedback. Thank you so much in advance. I'm just not sure anymore....
