Yesterday I went to the bathroom and cried.
Been a horrible week in the RT department. Stupid machine has been having faults and glitches galore. Four hours of downtime on Tuesday and two hours yesterday. SO BEHIND…CANCELLATION OF MANY PATIENTS…I TRIED TO BLEND INTO THE BACKGROUND!
I got so bloody bored, pissed off, angry, anxious, stressed, agitated, frustrated and became a CLOCK WATCHER! I couldn’t stop staring at the thing. Problems started within the hour of arriving yesterday.
I am supposed to be there to learn. I learned nothing. I’m supposed to work on last week and improve and show my capabilities…etc…etc. There was no time for me demonstrating my ability or performance on any occasion. My mentor was not helpful, I’ve learned more from the other RT’s. I feel completely disadvantaged.
Today I started in Treatment Planning. It was a good day. But I won’t be able to comment on it any further until I start really working with my mentor. She seems okay…but only time will tell.
- not-original-after-all said: Its okay every student has experiences like that, It will make you a beter practitioner in the long run. I don’t know the rules where you are but sometimes its better to work with RT’s other than the mentor. I wish you luck 4 this week!!
