  1. Hi, I am on the search for a part-time nursing position that is benefit eligible and I'm a little confused with the number (64 hrs) the company puts in the job description. What does the 64 hours mean? It seems like it varies with the different jobs the company posts. Like another nursing position the same company posted that is also part-time, said '72 hrs'. This is the example: Part-time (Benefit Eligible) · 64 hrs. bi-weekly · Varied Shifts · Weekends, Holidays and every other weekend
  2. Hi guys! I'm a new grad nurse with my BSN and working at an assisted living facility for residents with Alzheimer's. I've been working here for the past two summers as a caregiver. But anyways, I'm on my 2nd day of orientation and have only 2 more days left before I am on my own & I don't feel like I can do this job!! I feel extremely overwhelmed. Once I am supposed to be on my own, I'll be the only nurse (3-11pm) for 50 residents! We have a LOT of meds to pass and it's been taking me extra longer, since they have Alzheimer's. I want to talk to my boss later today and tell her how I feel. Ultimately, I want to work at a hospital as soon as possible, and she knows about that. However, I thought I would be able to handle this job in the meantime - but these orientation days have been hectic for me :\ I don't feel 100% confident that I can work here alone as a new grad and not make a mistake that can harm a resident, which terrifies me!! Also, I felt like my orientation has been VERY rushed and disorganized. They're frantically looking for a new night nurse, so I know they are desperate to keep me around. My biggest fear is that once I'm on my own next week I'm going to be overwhelmed and make mistakes I just have a bad feeling about this job and want to leave while I can. The thing that worries me is that it's going to hinder my job hunt. I've only worked at this place as a healthcare-related job, so my boss will probably give me a bad reference to employers. Weighing the options, though, I'd rather do that versus unintentionally harm a resident and lose my license... What do you guys think? Do you think I'm making the right decision?
