No matter how much work you do, they will ask more. The charting is wasted time repeating information in separate sections of the software. Takes time away from patient care. Do not get a chance to take that 30 min. break they dock your time for. Patients do not get time from the nurse they deserve because there is always 5 things to do when you are busy doing one task. Nurses stressed to tears trying to keep up. No support for nurse from supervisor make for a bad mix. You can learn a lot in a short period of time, but they expect a new nurse to do the same as a 5 year veteran nurse. Im sorry, but I never dislike anyone, but some nurses are too much. How about some support for new nurses. Heed these warnings. They are posted for a reason

There is always more work than possible to finish, then you get more. . When a patient is in tears it is a sad that the nurse cant stay a few minutes and comfort because charting has them rushing around , lots of charting, must be done. the documentation system is repetitive and takes precedence over taking time to comfort patients when they need it. There is no consistency in the many windows to chart, so nurses all chart differently. Streamline that information and save some time and stress. That would help the nurses care for patients and not burn out.
