Well my question is because I am a new grad is how do I, as low man on the totem pole, say I need to breastfeed while going through orientation and then shift duties.
I don't know how the floor is...face paced or not... though I think it will be and while on orientation: classroom time for the first week and then 8hr shifts 5days a week for a few months (I think)then night 3days a week 12hr shifts. I won't know anyone there to simply ask hey could you cover my pts (1:7 ratio telemetry) and I don't know if they are a BF friendly facility or not though they seem like they would be... I just don't want to start off this job seeming needy and demanding. I am always willing to help others, my fellow RN's and go that extra mile but as a new grad this may seem just that... needy and demanding
