    Disappointed New Grad

    Hi All, Im a new grad working in an community hospital where the population of patients is mental health. I currently finished my 6week orientation. We also are a teaching hospital where medical students are everywhere with charts:eek:. So the "new grads all work same shift and share 1preceptor (which I never expected it to be this way). So to make a long story short I dont really feel like I have learned to much, but Im not really sure, the clinical skills aspect I have. I work Med-surg so I have hung blood, CBI, started several IVs and Im fine with that. But what the preceptor does is she will so you a skill then after that if you have that skill again y ou do it on your own. Also if she shows you something you are responsible for showing the other mew grads. So in right now I work 8hrs then will soon start 12, the computer charting that we do on our own is not that difficult but the thing is that lately I have had 7-8 pts @ times 2-3 discharges/admissions so im having trouble balancing it all. I dont finish til 6 or 7p because preceptor is gone by 330p. Is this how it is everywhere? Will I eventually get the hang of things. I am very dissappointed in this hospital and myslf right now,but because I have to work I have to stay. This is the only hospital that gave me a shot.What should I do?

    For those that took Kaplan

    Yes i do think that kaplan is similar to boards. The instructor I had from kaplan told us that every few years when the nclex is "re-designed" kaplan is too. Kaplan is based off or geared towards nclex. When I was studying I made sure I completed all QT, and I also had the kaplan book. I studyed from saunders as well. Also once you finish a QT review ALL rationales to get the understanding of why you did or didnt pick the correct answer. Day before the test I did NOTHING but relax & PRAY. Remember GOD didnt bring you this far for nothing. Believe YOU CAN DO IT & YOU WILL!!!!

    For those that took Kaplan

    Hi I took Kaplan & the average I had on the QT was probably 60%. Saying that I think that you will be fine. I passed my nclex, I had 10-12 SATA 2math 3procedures i had to put in order. All that which kaplan prepared me for. Good Luck YOU CAN DO IT!
