  1. Feeling burnt out. Looking for advice.

    Thank you everyone for your comments and advice! I unfortunately took a sign on bonus so I’m contracted to stay inpatient for 2.5 years. If I break the contract I have to pay all the money back. My husbands is in school and not making money so we rea...
  2. I’ve been a nurse for a little over two years now. One year in medsurg and another in the NICU. I love the NICU but have been feeling overwhelmed and burnt out emotionally for some time now. I’ve had a couple of traumatic patient losses lately and ha...
  3. Hi everyone! I’ve been a nurse for a little over two years now. I spent over a year on a medsurg/renal transplant floor and a year in the NICU. I recently relocated and started a nicu position at a different hospital. The floor is great and ever...
  4. Preceptor Made Me Feel Like I Should Leave Nursing

    Thank you for all the great feedback and advice. I really appreciate it. I just want to do everything in my power to be the best nurse I can be for my patients and coworkers. I can usually brush off the occasional rude comment. My nurse educator told...
  5. Preceptor Made Me Feel Like I Should Leave Nursing

    My preceptorship in nursing school was hem/onc and I loved it. Maybe I will look into that. Thank you so much for all your feedback and help! I really appreciate it!

    Thank you so much for your feedback! I really appreciate it. If you don’t mind me asking what area of nursing did you end up going to after the NICU??

  8. Preceptor Made Me Feel Like I Should Leave Nursing

    Thank you! I just want to address this. I am definitely not overly confident at all on the unit. I know I don’t know anything. I own that. I apologize that I don’t know things and that I need help because I can tell she’s annoyed when I do ask for he...
  9. Preceptor Made Me Feel Like I Should Leave Nursing

    Thank you for response. I completely agree with everything you said. Unfortunately I have no other resources on the unit. The other nurses have made it very clear that the newer nurses are not welcome here. I do ask questions or for help if I don’t k...
  10. Preceptor Made Me Feel Like I Should Leave Nursing

    I 100% agree that patient safety come first and I would never do anything to put their safety at risk or pretend that I know more than I do. I always make sure to ask question or for help if I don’t know how to do something. I always ask her for feed...
  11. Thank you for the feed back. I have now been training in the nicu now for a little over two months and it hasn’t gotten any better. I was really hopeful that it was going to be a better environment for me to work in. My preceptor is really nice ...

  13. Thank you! I love this feedback! That’s usually my go to is to kill people with kindness. I always greet everyone and thank the nursing handing patients off to me in report for their hard work. I’ve had nurses chew me out in report and I thank them f...
  14. A lot of the same staff work on both of the floors. The one time I floated over to NICU the person who was assigned to orient me for the day threw a huge tantrum about having to teach me. He did later apologize to me which a lot of staff who had the ...
  15. Thank you for the great advise! I think this is a good opportunity for me to practice being more assertive with my coworkers. I want to try to stick it out. Right now I’m not sure if the negative atmosphere is skewing my perception of the job or if i...
