I just started a job a few weeks ago. I have a different preceptor every time due to 12 hr. shifts. The problem is you are supposed to have only a few patients, instead I have 6-7 acute patients everyday. I did not preceptor where there was a pyxis. I am very slow and hearing the report given so quickly is very difficult. I am slow. The preceptors have no time to really precept you. They have to get their work done. So you are looking over someone's shoulder, etc. They have all tried, but they are too busy to help except for a little bit. There is no lunch break as the nurse has a phone with her and if she gets a call about a light going off she has to get up and go take care of it, however, you are charged for a 30 minute break. I was also told that you could say you didn't get your break one day, but if you did it again they wouldn't be happy and probably say you are not prioritizing. I literally run from the time I get there to the time I leave, overwhelmed, is not the word.
