RN (Former Employee) – West Virginia – April 24, 2015
Brought on board with a "family-like atmosphere" promised and told it would be my "best job ever", and that they "worked with their nurses..and took the time and patience needed to help you be successful"....but that's not what happened. The first few weeks were great . I loved the patients and the work and worked hard both at work and documenting in the EMR after going home. Nine weeks into orientation I was told I "wasn't where I should be in orientation" with no further explanation. I felt like every day I was taking a major exam, fearful to make any mistakes or fail ( lose my job) and was even put on "a plan" while still on orientation. (Didn't know that was even possible!) One of my preceptors was very critical and controlling and the learning environment became so stressful I started dreading going to work. I've been an RN for many years, most of those years in ER, OR and Patient Education but never experienced anything quite like this.
Good pay and company benefits.
Stressful learning environment; No structure in orientation for you to know where you stand.
