I'm a new grad RN with past LPN exp. hired to work in CVICU a few months ago. Well, I've been off my internship for 2 months now and was told today my the NM that there have been several complaints about my patient care and I have two weeks to improve or I'll be asked to go to step down, medsurg or tele.
In my heart I don't see myself as a ICU nurse and never have. My passion have always been maternity. However, I wanted the experience and needed a job. Besides what new grad would pass up such a great opportunity.
Anyway, after hearing the news I was devastated. What hurts the most is that I'm seen as incompetent. I feel like a failure.
My plan is to speak to the nurse recruiter tomorrow to see if I can transfer to another unit of my desire and if not I will be resigning.
There is so much more to this story but this is the bulk of it. What do you all think?
