    New Grad orientation question

    Ugh that's crazy.. ya this is my first nursing job, I would FREAK if I only had 3 days.. the thing that sucks is I really like my preceptor and the aides but I'm on a different shift right now so I don't even have any rapport with the people I'll actually be working with..

    Thanks🙂 3 days for new nurses or experienced ones? I'm OK with the 20 pts on the LT but on the rehab floor that's tough.. it also has a covid section too.. having to gown up will slow it down too .. anyway I asked the other nurse yesterday and she said that's crap, there was always 2 lpns on the rehab floor so I'm gonna stay on the LT floor.. I feel a little stronger after yesterday doing half a med pass and stuff.. thanks for the advice.. oh and my nephew is autistic, one of a kind kid 💙

    New Grad orientation question

    Hi guys! So I graduated 2 years ago (Lpn) and due to personal issues couldn't get a job until now.. (this is my first job) my question is, how long is a typical orientation for a new nurse? This is my first week on the LT floor and the next 2 weeks are short term rehab floor and then I'm done.. not training all week either, a total of 104 hours.. and I'm gonna be doing the rehab floor of about 22 patients, 3-11 shift, alone. (well besides supervisor but they're all my patients) Is this a normal amount of time? I'm on day 4 and I'm like freaking the hell out that I'm never gonna be ready by then.. I've been trying to review old school notes at home .. they are REALLY desperate for help, so I just don't wanna be rushed in, ya know? Thx
