I remember having 6 weeks of training on the floor but throughout that having to take days off to do classroom training which shortened my training. Training for the dayshift at the start of training and flipping to night due to that being my set shift (basically having different people show me 20 different ways to do something). I also remember no one having the time and outright telling me, they don't want to, "orient someone". Next thing I know after 7 shifts (the start of 4 weeks), I was given a full load of patients. Only because I knew what I was doing and picking it up, I was able to handle it all. I also took a lot of notes, asked a lot of questions and would test myself on things during down time. Having prior experienced help me survive. It is so sad what is happening this day in age. People are quitting or getting fired and it is hurting people like you. Not only that but the hospitals don't want to hire someone just to train you properly. The hospitals also want to give the preceptors full patient loads and expect them to have the time to train you, when it should be that as you progress the patients should be added on, to where at the end of your training you have all of the patients. The other thing is people who don't want to train and are being made to train, not given a choice or even a heads up. Some are not qualified, and will show you the wrong way of doing something.The charge nurse can barely help because he or she has patients and is trying to run the unit. Here is the thing, many places are like this however if you have concerns about your license, then consider another place. Try to make it work, because many places are hanging on by a thread and short staffing is being forced. I had a situation to where I was being passed off to nurses that weren't assigned to train me and I told them, no I was not assigned to you, and I had to confront a person who was assigned to train me, not in a disrespectful way, but a um, you are assigned to me and until soemthing changes, I am following the policy.
