I recently obtained my first nursing education job in the hospital setting. This is my dream job and I really want to be successful. I have experience teaching students which I loved. I feel very fortunate to of obtained this position and want to do the best I can. My issue is this unit has not had an educator for a very long time, over 6 months. The director and manager pitched it as it will be alot of work but you can make it your own. I am excited and feel up to the task at hand but, am looking for suggestions or pearls of wisdom from those in this type of position. Also, I am set to do a meet and greet with the staff at the end of the week alone. Would anyone have any suggestions on how to proceed with this? I was thinking just go out on the unit and talk with staff and see what they are wanting in their educator to hopefully meet everyone expectations. Thanks in advance for any advice you may be able to provide.
