I really like my new job

  1. 30 I started my new job in med surg about 5 weeks ago. Today I managed 4 patients. I handled it well, I must say.

    I was terminated from my 1st job as a new RN last Oct. before making it off orientation for what I now in hindsight see as a petty B.S. reason. I cried, spit, cussed, wanted to put a hex on that hospital...you name it. But I was finally able to move on, and find another job.

    I think I have found my spot!! I love my job. My co-workers are helpful and willing to share their knowledge. The MD's are approachable. The patients have been great. My preceptors have nothing but praise about me. I'm learning more than I ever imagined in this short amount of time. We have supplies, working equipment, people who come to work to WORK!

    My 11 years as an LPN in LTC is really paying off, as most of our patients are over 60. I feel confident I will successfully make it off orientation. After what I went through, I sometimes feel like this is too good to be true.

    You need to give ontheway84 a pep talk... you probably would have great advice to give.

    I had almost the same experience with my first RN job. I lasted 4months and the whole time I was looking for another job. I was constantly critisized for doing things that everyone else also forgot and I was not trained properly. I felt like I was not given the tools to do the job to the best of my ability. I resigned as soon as I found another job.

    Now I have a new job that I love, the other nurses are AWESOME!!! very helpful. They don't give you a ****** look when you ask a question, their friendly and they know that no one is perfect. I enjoy going to work now and I have stopped looking/appying to other jobs. I LOVE MY JOB!!!!
