I am currently in orientation in transitional care. I've worked at this facility for 6 months in one of their long-term care units and have loved it but they didn't have full time hours for me there and the transitional care unit did, so I've moved departments. I had some transitional care residents at my previous facility but they generally were recovering from falls or pneumonia, things like that. So far, I've oriented 2 of my 6 nocs of orientation and one was very, very quiet, the other showed me that I have a LOT to learn about dressings and post-op care. I'm seeing fresh CABGs, hips, total knees, a fresh abdominal surgery with wet-to-dry dressings, am told that there are often PICCs. I'll be working nights, so won't have much in the way of back up available and am feeling excited about how much I'll be learning but also a bit overwhelmed and not wanting to screw up. Those who have made this transition, what words of wisdom do you have? What resources would you suggest?
