How to adjust...help!

Published

I'm just signed as prn agency with a company. I felt fine as I'm very confident in my nursing abilities, BUT I'm now super anxious bc the charting is Meditech. It's horrible and I'm nervous I won't keep up from this ancient charting system. As an agency nurse (I've never done) you should be self sufficient. I'm not sure I can be with meditech. Any suggestions. experiences? Any info for a new agency nurse? Floating info?

Not sure which version you're using but I used a DOS version during a travel assignment this summer. If it's anything similar it's not a hard system to use, it's just not user friendly. But it's not confusing, and wasn't hard to pick up. Are you getting any type of training with the program?

yes, virtual training and a check off....I just like to be very efficient and timely when working at the bedside. Maybe I am over reacting. thanks
