So it is bittersweet to say that I have given in my two week notice for my first RN job. I don't know if I ever said how I truthfully felt about my job but I actually hated it. I enjoyed the actual work but the hospital itself was not making me happy. One main issue I had was the fact they didn't train the nurses in different departments but made us float to other areas with out orientation or training. I am a new grad and even though I worked in Med-Surg as a nurses aide I still don't have the experience as a Registered Nurse. I felt as though I was placed in unsafe situations and the hospital didn't care. I even bought nursing insurance through Nurses Services Organization because I didn't feel safe there. I stood up for myself while the other nurses allowed them to walk all over them. You have to remember that it is your license, you worked hard for it and no one else cares to protect it. Safety for yourself and the patients is what it came down to and I couldn't deal with it any longer. I did learn a lot during my time there and I met some great people. I had one nurse, that I would probably never forget, tell me that I am a smart and great conscientious nurse. I have met a lot of people in my life but it's the ones who encouraged me in my nursing career that I wont ever forget. So I am on the market again for a new job. Wish me luck and I will keep you all updated!
