Hey! How long have you been taking cases? What are your kids (or adults) like? I also did this as a new grad but I got simple kids with g-tubes and such. When they tried to send me somewhere without an orientation with another nurse I told them no. Truth is that most of those places just want someone to fill the holes with these kids. I cared enough about the kids and I knew what areas my skills were lacking. I never put a kid in danger and I never risked my lisence just so the company could fill a hole with a nurse. I got out of that situation as fast as I could by finding a job in a hospital. It only took me a couple months but I realize for others it is taking a lot longer. Are you working with adults or kids? I think no matter what home health is a crappy place for a new grad to start. Most of us just are not confident enough in our skills. I took the job because I needed money and I needed experience. If you feel the same way stick it out for a while until you find a job that better suites a new grad. Whatever you do, do not let them walk all over you and send you to cases you are not comfortable with. I wish you the best of luck!
