Okay, so I've started working as a Nurse Tech on the MBU. Our hopsital does patient care teams ... one mom RN, one baby RN and a Nurse Tech take on six or so couplets (moms and babies).
My first day I trained with a wonderful Nurse Tech, who also happens to be a friend of mine, and who I've heard is the best on the floor. My next two days of training are with a tech who is known to be lazy and to do the least amount possible. I'm scared to train with someone like this!
Fortunately, the managers on the floor give great written guidelines as to what needs to be learned (although with no experience doing these things, I'm a little nervous). What I'm looking for is what is wanted and/or needed from the Techs on these floors that isn't written down? What do you wish that the Tech's would do for you? Or not do for you? Give me some pointers, some stories, some whatever you have!
I love this job and have that Type A personality that drives me to perfection ... I want to be the Nurse Tech that everyone wants to work with ... help me figure out how! (Oh, other than my great work ethic and sparkling personality!)
