Ratio is 5:1 and all the nurses on the floor were stating its a busy floor.
I am going to start orientation really soon classes first for a month and then 3 month preceptorship.
Can people suggest tips for everything new grad. I know I have a lot of learning to do.
Any tips based on developing a good relationship with the preceptor, other nurses, and manager. I tend to be shy and I do not want them to think I am rude or being a loof.
Any books I can read on everything telemetry?
What pts to exptect> I am thinking possible MI pts or post Mi, stroke pts, post cardiac cath-- I am probably missing types of pts, please name them!
I really want to start strong!
Also, please break down the whole preceptorship process. How will my first day be like? Would it be appropriate to ask the preceptor the culture of the floor? New grad turnover rate? What those new grads that left early needed to improve on? When will they typically expect me to be on my own with them shadowing me? I know its a total of 4 months precepting.
Most common meds?
