I'm a new grad RN that is working in the ED. I was a tech in the same dept for about 6 months before graduating. I did my practicum in the ED and now I'm on orientation as a new RN. My hospital just changed their orientation policy for new grads. They only offer 7 weeks of orientation. My director does not agree with that change and has said that if after the 7 wks, if I feel that I'm not ready yet, I could extend that orientation time. My 7 weeks ended this week. I am horrible at second guessing myself, but I work with a fantastic group of nurses, techs and Doctors. I have no problem asking for help or asking questions if I'm not knowledgable at what I'm doing. I'm afraid that if I ask for the extension, my co-workers and director will start doubting my abilities. I'm afraid that if I dont ask for the extension, I'm going to take on more than I can handle. What should I do?
