...into nursing and i feel so inadequate! I work at a nursing home, but i only get to nurse about 5% of the time. When I got hired I was under the impression that they were going to hire 3 nurses on the floor that I was going to work on, and asked if i could "pass meds" until they do, that they were just waiting for a third med cart. Well it is 3months later and over heard the DON tell someone that "we aren't getting a third cart". So I started to look elsewhere my problem is I dont feel like I have a strong background!... When I do get to nurse I do treatments and peg tube feedings charting... My passion is to nurse, i really enjoy it. I like the building of trust and rapport that you build with the residence... the reason i went into nursing is to work with the elderly, but not sure if this place is the place for me.... but not sure how many people will hire me! I am looking for a day position because i have small children so that is another reason i accepted this job, but i am finding that as i continue to look, all that is available is evening and and nights
ok i feel a little better! thank you for reading!
