Hiya Frazzled1!!! *waves*
I would suggest contacting your union. Its so important Newly quailified nurses recieve valuable feed back beacuase at the end of the day you need constructive feedback.
I woudl ask your manager to sit down with you. Identify a mentor whos shifts you can copy (if you have childcare issues choose someone that is on a similer rota). Ask your mentor to support you. Thats what there therefore. I qualilfied in sept 2007 and went straight onto the bank so no preceptorship for me!!! Its really hard being a newly qualiifed as it is.
Do you know where your going wrong? however i dont believe any nurse is wrong as we all have different ways of doing things and some nurses prioritse differently. i would try to get a system in place to work in a regulated enviroment. I have a system from the time i step on my ward and most of the time it works (exceptions when a emergancy arises)
I often make lists and on a sheet of paper whilst doing my drug round i label it say bed 1-8 in a bay and write down what each person needs ie. needs meds ordering, needs MUST updating ect and then that leaves me a list to crack on throughout the day.
Im very upset to hear your charge nurse constantly tells you off becuase actually thats not very constructive. I woudl expect him to identify the issues that he has witht the way you work so that you can either adapt it or change your system
Im really sorry your having a horrid time
managers cant see there arse from there elbow sometimes but you deserve to have constructive critisim. Its not rocket science!!! Hope all goes well with your meeting. You can always PM me for advice.
Could i also suggest a book for you to buy? It was writen by my Tutor at Uni but i found the advice very good.
