Thanks for the responses. They want the new hires/grads (another RN & I) to get used to triage now because we will be expected to do it. I think it comes down to the fact we are extremely busy and everyone has to pull their weight. As of now when I triage, my precepting RN double checks my vag exams (if req) before I call the MD. Otherwise, I've learned how to do spec exams, collect FFN's, amnicators, etc...We do have awesome team work at the hosp and everyone is willing to answer questions or double check something if I'm not sure. Majority of the doctors have been great, very helpful and willing to teach. Then again, I am at a teaching hospital and have med students/residents all over the place. I had my first should distocia yesterday and my preceptor and MD were great during the whole delivery and went over the delivery afterwards.
I know things will take time. I take each day as a learning experience and am getting some constructive feedback from my co-workers. They all tell me it takes atleast 2-5 yrs to feel ok at the job. I guess I just feel this huge weight since the L&D RNs can do so much in the state where I work and the MDs have certain expectations because of it. I take each day one at a time and go from there.
