Im an ICU Nurse interested in attending California State University at Fullerton. Do you know of any hospitals close by that offer %100 tuition reimbursement to the university. I currently reside in another state.
ok, thank you guys. mostly ladies
Are there union hospitals in the chapel hill/durham area?
Thank you, Im from Illinois and looking to relocate.
Are your ICU's one-to-one on a continual basis? Does your union have that rule in place, Thank You....Im from Illinois and looking to relocate.
Can you list any hospitals in Illinois that you know of where the ICU is one to one.
Responses so far seem less than sympathetic.
I agree you should have more training and and a preceptor by your side helping, not just you doing and her pointing out your errors. Sure this is common practice, but that doesn't make it right, and certainly doesn't mean you should put up with it. I agree that you should get an immediate response to your concerns, and/or find somewhere else to work where you get some training before you are thrown in. No "buts" or "maybes" go where you feel supported and safe, and let those that are OK with this type of orientation take this job. You may have gathered that I am not one of those people.
It is not clear why you threatened to quit. Did you have a bad experience with nobody to back you up?
The fact is that most nurses are really just thrown out there to the wolves in shorter spans of time.
Yes, in reality, Ive gotten a 2 week oriantation. We have three open positions on days that no one is applying for, the ratio is always 2 patients and sometimes three, which I think is dangerous.
My boss has assigned me to a new preceptor because I broke down and quit, she convinced me to come back and train with a different preceptor. To be honest, Im looking for a new job tommarow, I now have ACLS and three months under my belt, so Im not experianced but maybe someone will take me in?
I am in my 9th week of being a new grad working in the ICU. I was being taught for the first 2 weeks but then they put me out there working and helping me if I have a questions, now Im not being taught at all and my preceptor is telling me Im not catching on fast enough.
Shouldnt my 12 week oriantation be me working next to her learning?
There is none of this, its me working and then she reviews my work and critisizes me that Im missing things.
Im very discouraged.
P.S. my ICU oriantation is only 3 months while most ICU oriantation 6 months, doesnt this sound fishy to you?
