Marikat, as a nurse with 6 years expereince in a very busy ER, my first 3 weeks on a travel assignment at Kaiser kicked my behind. First of all, I don't like Kaiser and their MAR system where you have to scan everything, and half the time, the scanners don't work, or the computers in the room doesn't work, and you're then in trouble for not giving the med on time, but I digress. I also used EPIC system at Kaiser- are you at one of their facilities?
Either way, please learn that you have to give yourself a break--you're a cook in someone elses' kitchen, yet you're expected to know where everything is....the spices, knives, plates, etc. Same with travel nursing, you KNOW what you're doing, just not how to do it their way, using their system- yet. But trust me, it gets better because it's a learning curve. Give yourself a month to adjust to the newness of things, ask for help from those you get a good vibe from, and try not to let them see you sweat. A lot of times, the staff love making you sweat & work hard for "all that money" they think you're making- don't give them that satisfaction.
2wks into my first assignment at Kaiser, I wanted to quit!!! Spoke with more travelers who gave me the same advice as above, and I'm glad I gave it a chance-have now been in the game a yr with 3 contracts so far.
