I graduated in May of this year. I took my first job on a Med surg floor. The orientation was basically sink and swim. After the orientation, I received no check list or feedback. I have not done almost half of the skills required to function confident on that floor. I addressed my concerns with the floor manager, she told me, I would be ok. So far, I am doing ok. My main concern with that floor, is the way they assigned patients to nurses. For example, last night, there were about 4 isolations, I got 2 of them out of 5 nurses working. My assignment was split from the night shift because of the complexity. The Day charge nurse purposely changed the assignment so her friends can have lighter loads, while I ran alll shift. Almost all of my patients were confused and on tabs, which required constant running from one end of the hall to the other. I am planning to resign, but before that, I would like to meet with the CEO and the nurse manager, so they can do something about that. I am also not the only nurse the clique is doing that do. There are like 5 nurses that are good friends. They drink and party together; so when they are in charge, their friends get easier patients, so they can have time to text, surf the web and joke around with each other.
I appreciate any advice from you guys.
