Well, maybe not a Saga..........lol
So, today was my 2nd day....Not to
eventful. 2 other new grads and I, spent the day with the Clinical Educator..... He was soooo Nice!
He had me rollin on the floor laughing all
day. Telling us stories about when he was a newgrad and all the crazy things that nurses did 20 years ago!
We mostly spent the day going over competencies and policy and procedures..
There is a frikkin policy and procedure FOR EVERYTHING
. No,think of your thickest
nursing book that you have and imagine 2 of those bad boys taped together.....Thats the manual!!!!
Phew, just thinking about it makes me shake my head.......... :chuckle
Well, I have 10 weeks for orientation so I might get thru
Then we toured the hospital ,which I am familiar with b/c I worked in the ED as a tech, it was nice to get a refresher on where the new labs are.
So, I just wanted to keep you updated on my progress....Im in at 7am on the FLOOR
:uhoh21: ahhhhhhhh! I get ONE WHOLE PATIENT to work with and I have to do all my preceptors assessment and go over paperwork...
Holy cannoli! DID I FORGET TO MENTION PAPERWORK
......well Im not gonna go there right now......its to overwhelming to type about. Sheesh....... Oh well, Im looking forward to the days ahead... Can't wait to jump in the trenches...with my preceptor of course.
God bless the preceptors!!!!
