Nov 13, 2016 StarlI am sorry for the multitude of negative responses you are receiving on the board here. I also have been blasted by them. I am new to nursing also, I also moved to different agencies, facilities looking for my right fit as well.I do not think there is anything wrong with you. You were not careful, should have read the doctors orders and not relied on the out going nurse to tell you everything. Keep in mind as I have found, not many nurses will help you and I hope you can decipher this by the reactions you receive on the board here.You need to be CAREFUL, with home care, you have the time to read those orders !!!I agree, the facility is dangerous as it is bulked with too many patients and not enough time or staff. I don't care what anyone says on this board. Too bad the nurses do not stick together to report the dangerous conditions for the patients and the staff. However, everyone is so afraid to lose a job !!!I remember meeting my trainer at the facility I oriented with, she was employed for 5 years there and it is still a mystery to me, why she would want to work the way she did. She guzzled a lunch in 5 minutes, no peeing or taking a sip of water the entire shift. I find it inhumane, to be subjected to this day after day.I think you are smart to take that bridge to RN, there are more options for you. Just let your mistakes be a learning experience. The nurses here have made them as well, we are human and not perfect. However, you will encounter this mentality of being criticized. Remember !! be CAREFUL you have human lives in your hands !! there is nothing at all wrong with you, you are new !!Nope. Nope. All aboard the train to Nopeville!It is NOT okay to excuse this behavior under the banner of being new. That is an insult to earnest new nurses everywhere. This is not a problem with being new. Some of these issues will happen no matter what profession or job the OP winds up in. This is not a "new nurse" problem. This is a character problem. You don't figure out through trial and error that it is wrong to clock out early. You don't figure out through trial and error that it is wrong to say you changed a dressing or rotated an IV site or turned your patients or cleaned up their BM or did mouth care without actually having done so. That is NOT a new nurse "whoopsie-doodle, live and learn!" problem. OMG, I am fuming. Nope. Nope. Nope. Heck to the nope. This is a problem with morals. With character. You don't grow those as a new nurse. If you don't have them in place before your first day of nursing school there is nothing to be done.
