I started a new job and I liked it at first, now I hate it. I don’t want to go back but have to. The lady training me for a office job is rude to me, so is the other nurse there. I’ve put in 110%. I’m good at what I do but I’m rushed when I’m trying to learn and not make a mistake. I ask a question and either they act like they are mad or tell me I’m getting too far ahead and that she will get there. I just got my insurance but I really don’t want to work there. Not with rude trainers

As long as you know you can either find a new job asap or have enough money saved up, leave. Let them find someone who will stay long term and you will be happier. Maybe now you know why the position was open to begin with.

General rule of thumb in working is make sure you have a new job before you quit. But, really, if you're unhappy, quit (after you get a new job).

Is it a job you will want once training is over?

How much longer is the training? Can you see yourself getting through it and settling into your position? Many people do not like to train new people, they see it as an additional duty that they shouldn't have to do.

Try to hang in there, desk jobs in nursing are pretty hard to come by.

Good luck.

I agree with BTDT, how much longer is the training.   Yea I would also just let them talk and listen, store or write down my questions for later. It's good you're getting this experience, so you learn what not to do.  

If all this fails and it's still not worth, yea move on, but before you do, laugh a little inside, this won't last forever.  You could have just taken their best best girlfriends old job.

Other than the trainer do you think you will like the job long term? Training won't last forever.  By the way, acting "mad" when you ask questions is definitely not OK but telling you some of your questions will be addressed and answered later in the training is OK if indeed the question is about something you haven't covered yet but will.

It is unusual in this day to say a female educator is a "lady". Harkens back to times when men were uncomfortable with women bosses....Could this be the case?

Confidence is always good. But is your confidence in yourself misplaced...take a step back....Are you good at every new task, new experience in front of you? 

Why did you leave your past job position for this one?

We all like to think that, May be asking "the lady training you" where you missed the 110% mark and ummmmm maybe listen before forming a reaction in your mind?

I teach nursing students in their last semester of school. One of my students asked for tips as a new grad. One piece of advice that I gave her was to not be afraid to try a different area of nursing if she felt like she wasn’t loving her first job. There are so many opportunities out there, start looking to see what else might be a better fit. That being said, I would also recommend meeting with your direct supervisor. As a new employee, you should feel comfortable asking questions. Let your supervisor know how you’re feeling and that you’re not sure this department is the best fit because of it. The problem will either get fixed or it won’t, and then you’ll know what to do next.

After your training, will you have to see them again? Will they be a part of your day to day activities? If not, leave them where they are, rise above what they have and haven’t taught you and do your best. Folk like that just aren’t happy with themselves and it’s a shame other people have to suffer for it. Pray, put a smile on your face and keep it moving!
