Hi I am a new nurse and have been working as a nurse for 3 weeks. I work on a sub-acute rehab floor where I can have anywhere from 14 to 20 patients. I have been feeling very overwhelmed recently because I am finding it difficult to care for so many patients. I find it difficult to properly do my assessments with so many patients and can only do it on the new admissions I get. I have to do 2 med pass per shift but I keep getting detailed when I am doing them because I either get a new admission, or something is wrong with a patient, or a family member wants to talk to me. Also my patients are supposed to be subacute but I have a couple that I believe should be on an acute floor in a hospital. When I get a new admission I have to stay after my shift for an hour to do the charting for them. I also have a problem with some of the CNA's and making sure that they are completing their tasks properly I dont like having to babysit grown adults and make sure that they are doing their jobs which also puts me further behind. I also have a problem with their attitude that they give me I was told be preceptor that it was because I am new and so much younger than them. I am supposed to be in training still but have been left on my own for a week now with no preceptor.
