I am so afraid of my new job. I haven't felt like this since I was a new grad. I was hired in LTC as the top nursing management person (in case anyone from there reads this). The problem is, is that the current top nursing management person (leaving) didn't want to train me. She just showed me forms and told me what they were but didn't showed me what it took to fill them out or when they were due. She accused me of doing things that I wasn't capable of doing because I was new and wouldn't know how to do them anyway. I want to do a good job and I have informed my company of the barriers that were being presented to me. I wanted them to be aware that I am not incompetent, I was facing the challenge of dealing with someone who wouldn't train me. I feel overwhelmed right now. I made notes of everything she DID tell me. I am not afraid of challenges I am good at working my way through issues. I am just hoping that management will give me a chance to learn, and an opportunity to prove myself. Has anyone else ever faced this kind of situation, where the person who was supposed to orient you failed to do so? I guess I would feel better knowing I am not unique in this type of situation. lol.
