I have been a nurse for almost a year. I recently started a new job. After 7 days of orientation I was determined to be too slow and forced to resign. I do not feel 7 days was enough time to know much of anything or to build up any speed. Am I wrong to feel like they didn’t give me much of a chance?

I don't know the specifics of what happened, of course.

You were adequate to the task in some other position, obviously. They didn't give you a chance, and I wouldn't beat myself up over it.

Sounds like a blessing me. Imagine the risk you could have potentially put your license in because of a job that wants a rushed nurse. The moment something goes wrong you better believe they would have thrown you under the bus.

I know right? I was trying to be careful and make sure I did it right. They basically sat there and timed me. 🙄

Not to mention how nerve wrecking it is being a brand new nurse. I will be late every med pass if i have to if it means being safe and protecting my license

That's crazy, talk about pressure.
