Hello all, I am new to the boards and have a question. I've been in nursing for 20 years in both LTC and home health. I have recently relocated back to the Dallas area and secured employment at a very small agency. This agency serves all of the Dallas metro area. I don't mind the driving as that is part of the job and it is giving me the opportunity to relearn the area since I have been away for the past 19 years. Anyway, the woman who owns the agency is also DON, administrator, well...she's everything. This is my first week there and she has given me a full load and expects me to start at 8 in the morning (that's not the problem) and be done by 2. The problems lies in the fact that she wants me to see 10-12 patients in that time span and the patients she gives me are at least 15-20 miles apart. Then when I cant produce she yells saying that her other nurse does it and even is able to give patient a shower if they need it and yells at me saying that I need to work on my time management skills. She continues to berate me and then turns around saying she is only trying to help me. At my previous job I saw 10 patients or more a day and my time management skills were very good and my boss there was always complimenting me on my work. Now with this agency how am I supposed to go and see that many people in that time frame with that much distance between them and still provide good nursing care? It's only been two days and my confidence has gone so far down I don't even know if I want to stay in nursing. Sorry for the length but I just need advice from experts.
