I am starting a new job shortly and wonder if anyone has any tips that helped them during their first weeks. (I used to be an AIN in aged care but am now an RN). What did you do to help you get organised the first week?
I am concerned that my time management which is okay on prac might come undone. I know there are smarty packs for the medications -small plastic bags for each med round with the patient's names on. What particularly concerns me is that with aged care there are not many opportunities to take vital signs and I'm scared I'll get rusty. Would you be willing to share the most valuable tips or practice that helped you?. What are the pitfalls that need to be avoided? Here's hoping you can assist thanks.
