I'm like 3 weeks into my first job which suppose to initially be 12 weeks new grad program when I first spoke to them. Now the paper work they gave me said up to 10 weeks and nurses on the floor say they basically get a full patient load on their on at 6 weeks with no preceptor. The first 2 weeks we mainly did paper work and computer orientation and by the first day on the floor I was given half of the preceptors patients on my own along with the preceptors available to assist . They no longer do preceptor shadowing. The place is short staffed and people are leaving left and right. I think its rather dangerous to be leaving me with patients on my own the very first day. I get the impression they just need to fill positions as quickly as possible. I am a fast learner but I don't want to be unsafe in my first job and like make a tragic mistake and risk my new license. Its a med-surg floor with lower acquity if that makes a difference.I have another interview coming up soon at another larger institution and they are associated with a major university and do lots of research and its a teaching hospital, so I'm thinking their training will be better. I originally was not going to go to this second interview since I already got my first RN job but I feel totally unsafe with my current training even though I really need the money. If the pay matches I'm thinking of jumping ship and going to this other hospital, which also happens to be my dream place to work-although not my dream position(another med-surg) its a foot in if I get an offer.Anyone else experienced this? Being thrown to the wolves too early. Or is it just how all new RNs feel at their first job during new grad training. Also has anyone quit a new grad position for another new grad position this early in the game and will doing this adversely affect for career/resume? I think this will set the pace for my nursing career so I want to make the right decision.
