I'm supposed to orientate a new hired nurse Monday, since I'm the permanment nurse for my unit I'm going to be orientating her for 2 days. However I'm lost on how to do it. I work at a nursing home and my unit is very boring for my job. I tend to make time go by by finding random things to do or answering call lights or talking to residents but with an orientee I can't just BS around like that.I am the charge nurse on a floor that has 2 med nurses and 5 aides, so really all the charge nurse does is chart, take off orders and call the doctor. But unless there's an emergancy- which isn't that common at all since all of our residents are very stable- there's nothing to do. I work the 3-11 shift and sadly there's almost nothing to show this person on my unit.I can show her how to do rounds and how to staff the unit, but that would take what...an hour? I do help feed, so I can show her that too since we have so many feeders we need all nurses to help out. Would that be ok? If so that takes care of 2 hours of an 8 hour day. Charting itself is almost nothing it takes maybe an hour there. So that's 3 hours taken care of and 5 hours left for me to figure out what to do. Which is what freaks me out!I can't show her meds, since that technically isn't my job. And unlike the respiratory unit that has critical people or the other units that have nurses that do both meds and charts I got nothing! Right now I'm seeing myself as being a horrible orientator that will just be a nervous mess because my unit has nothing. Plus I hate this because I'm still new at nursing I just barely got a year's experience and to have someone watch over me if I make a mistake. That scares me even more! Right now I'm almost hoping that someone calls off so I can either charge 2 units or be med/charge nurse, so at least I can show her something more then what I got in a slow as molasses unit.Any ideas?
