    What I often find frustrating is the disconnect between policy and practice during orientation. I can watch three different preceptors do it three different ways (on documentation for example), and the policy states a different way that no one does.

    Every new facility is going to be very different I have a feeling. I'm on my second Travel contract. The first one was easy-peazy for me. It was a breeze and I performed well straight from the start. They loved me so much, the manager gave me her personal cell phone number to come back.
    Now, On my second assignment clear across the country. Not so much. I'm having a lot of difficulty adjusting to the new documentation. It's like nothing I've never done before. What makes it so difficult is that their paperwork and documentation are very complex AND management rides you for every little thing. They're over the top extremely scrutinizing. It's outta hand. If I don't end up getting fired from this travel job due to "poor Documentation", I'll never return once completed. They stress me out.
