Yes, I feel as though I am being set up to fail as well. I am constantly worried on my days off that I have made a mistake and that I am going to lose my license. It is really affecting my home life. I am completely miserable. I have asked if I could go to nights, but was told to "suck it up." I have expressed my concerns of being behind and getting out on time, but no one seems to listen. I have asked if I should transfer to another unit less stressful such as med surg, but was told no. I really have doubt in my mind as to continuing to work there. I think it's ok to admit it is overwhelming and to make some changes. I do think that continuing to work at this facility is a mistake because I have floated to every floor as a secretary and everyone, including the physicians still see me as a secretary. Not only do I do my own orders, but I do other nurse's orders too because some nurses couldn't put an order in the computer if it saved their life. We only have one secretary and she has the whole unit and many times we only have one charge nurse, and sometimes I never even see the charge nurse until the end of the shift. I was told to ask for help more and I have, but when I call and ask for help, I am told they are busy. I even have had to leave my patients and get my blood from the blood bank because I couldn't find anyone to go for me and this was my first day off orientation with 2 vented patients. Please don't think I am a whiner and that I don't like to work hard because I do. I want to be successful. I just don't think this is the environment that will help me. I hope I can find a job somewhere else. I hope I didn't waste all those years in nursing school.
