I'm a brand new, LPN and I was hired at a LTC facility and went in today to fill out paperwork and talk to the scheduler. The scheduler didn't say much to me except to come in Monday 7-3, and then she said Monday to Friday 7-3 for two weeks is my orientation. I don't know where I go, which wing I'm in or anything. The new employee company orientation is October 15th, so I think it's weird that they have me starting before this date. Also I asked a nurse there what their ratios are, and she said 1, maybe 2 nurse(s) to 25-30 patients, and 2 cna's.
I go back on Thursday to get my PPD checked and to give HR a voided check for direct deposits. Do you think I should ask to see the scheduler to clarify a few things, or should I call and ask?
Im completely freaking out that I start in a few days.
