I am having a hard time adjusting to my new job. Labor and delivery nursing is sooo much different from telemetry. Different patient population, different procedures, different charting… I thought it would be easier for me to transition than a new grad but I think I may be having a harder time! I saw a bunch of babies born this week which made my discomfort worth it. I’m sure I’ll become more comfortable as I get to work with my preceptor. These last two weeks have been spent in “skills days”. We’re doing things like observing postpartum, the OR, PACU, etc. That was a good experience but there were days that I think were better spent with a preceptor.
I’ve been knitting in my spare time. I completed two squares for the San Diego wildfires blanket project. They are having a big joining party tomorrow but I don’t know who I can give my squares to. I have to work tomorrow so I can’t join in on the fun. My Charlotte’s web shawl is so close to done that I can taste it. I’ll probably be done this weekend and I’ll post a pic then.
I miss my Wednesday knitting group. I think I can join them at a meeting in December. Yeah!!! I hope everyone had a great week.
