Hello all. I am a new nurse and have recently started my first job and I am having some reservations. I came here to get some insight on other people's experience.So, I have worked in a hospital environment for about 8(fish) years but never as a nurse. I was a phlebotomist for years and then a nurse intern (tech) for a few months before graduating. Because I have worked in these roles plus clinical environments for school and my time spent in my practicum I never thought I would have such trouble and so many reservations. I have a wonderful preceptor and half-way through it I was caring for a full load of patients (5-6) entirely, including charting. Ok, moving along. I am now in my first position as a RN and it has been a mess from orientation to now and I have literally only been on the floor for 3 days. So, the hospital I work has a residency program just as most other hospitals around here. To be honest, I did not want to sign contract but one of the hospitals that doesn't have contracts right now is/was on a hiring freeze and the other is HCA and did not have any of their StarRN programs coming up until October. My contract payout is 5K and I am starting to think that eventually it may come to that unless they accept my husbands orders since we are technically not living in the county and they said that the orders have to be outside of the county of where the hospital is..... Let me digress!!In orientation is when I got my first shock. I have never worked for a company that was not going to be joint commission accrediated but this hospital will be. They are moving to a different body of accreditation once they run out with joint commission. They will be moving to DNV I believe. So when I get to the floor I am following another preceptor for 12 weeks until I am set free on my own. But..... My preceptor is technically still a new nurse herself because she barely has 1 year experience. So for three days now I have been at work 3 hours past getting off then I have to drive an hour home. She absolutely has terrible time management. I all of this in the nicest way possible because it is not that I do not like her as a person it is just that I do not think she is ready to have a new graduate with her. I have done everything I could the past few days to kind of lead her on patient care time management. For instance, yesterday we had to give blood to a patient and it took me hours to finally get it started (it was not emergent). She kept finding other things to get done when we could have just taken the 15 minutes and start the blood then work on the other things. Instead, we were getting the blood down and vitals 40 minutes after the END of shift. Ok, so the day before I offered to chart some and she didn't seem like I would be any help in doing so, I suppose. We were very busy and didn't get any charting done which lead to not leaving until 10!!!! Even the person who was her preceptor tried to tell her that I have a license so.... It will fall on me if I do something wrong! Keep in mind I offered to help chart because I took care of and assessed the patients, otherwise I would not have offered to assist. Now there is more. It appears there is a milieu to accept that some of the doctors will yell at you just due to being busy. So, I understand not all doctors are just super pleasant but I just don't feel comfortable with accepting this and on all the floors I have been on with school plus working as a tech I never seen other nurses accept this either. If you are scared that a doctor with literally yell at you then that is going to lead to a miserable environment. There really are more things I am uncomfortable with but this is already so very long. I want to be a nurse. I love the patient care aspect but what I am seeing is that it could be improved. Obviously I do everything I can more my patients but it does seem to go beyond this. I just want to be a SAFE nurse. I would rather question doctors orders than just follow them if something seemed "off", after all, I have a license to look after too..SO, what do y'all think? What is the best way to handle the situation or is it something I just should get used to? P.S. I apologize if there are any grammar mistakes but I did not proofread due to it being so long.
