Hi all! So let me start off by saying that I was hired on a floor that I believed at the time was my dream job. I seriously felt like I hit the jackpot and was so lucky and happy to have been chosen for the position. I have been on orientation for 4 weeks now. My problem is that I feel I have had too many preceptors. I am an experienced nurse. My last job was my first job and I stayed there for 3 years. I couldn't wait to get out of there as fast as possible so when this job came along, I felt so relieved. My last orientation was honestly the best orientation I could have asked for. I had one preceptor throughout the entire process and it was a good match up. I felt supported and there was a trust between my preceptor and I. This orientation, I have had 3 preceptors so far. One of my current preceptors is now getting rotated out and starting next week, I will be with someone new. My experience and skills have helped me immensely in this new position but I feel like my confidence is dropping every week I go through. I feel like it should be the other way around. I felt more confident the first week to be honest and not in a cocky way, I just felt really good about where I was at. Maybe that was the "honeymoon phase" and reality hadn't set in yet. With new jobs come new responsibilities and that is terrifying, at least to me. I actually miss my old job and I never thought I'd say that. I guess I just miss being independent and feeling like I knew what I was doing. My preceptors have been mostly good but the randomness and going from one to the other is throwing me off. I feel like I have to start over every week and prove myself to my new preceptor. My manager actually told me (in the nicest way possible) to work on my confidence and that comment just broke me down even more. Is this a normal feeling of being on orientation? Has anyone else felt this way? Any words of advice or encouragement would be greatly appreciated! I also tend to be very hard on myself so maybe I just need to stop thinking about it so much. I do like this job and I think I will like it more once I get started on my own but this orientation process is beating me down. And once I orient on nights, I will be with 2 more people. I just feel like they are putting me with too many preceptors and I am not getting the best learning experience due to lack of consistency. Each new preceptor doesn't know what I am capable of and I feel like I have to prove myself again and again.
