I posted about this issue few days ago but now it came up again. I worked in a long term care facility for 4 years and was hired to work in sub acute unit that is due to open either next or in 2 weeks. I had 2 and a half weeks of orientation with preceptor and last week was my last day of orientation. A nurse manager told me she have few day shifts open and she's going to put me on the schedule on my own. I told her I'm not comfortable, manager said shes going to have a charge nurse looking over me and shes going to put me in the same assignment so I have same patients. I know in med/surg that's not going to happen because they are constantly discharging and admitting patients. Do you think two and half week of orientation is enough? Day shift is so busy even nurses there have hard time keeping up with everything. I dont know what to do!!
