    Thank you so much for all the response! As a new grad I believe that I am not in the position of going to the manager and outing the nurse that I am precepting with. What do I know, I'm just a new grad! I am dreading it, literally to go into work everyday. I had become a bitter and angry person since I began. Now I am wondering if I made the wrong choice as to become a nurse. When I decided to become a nurse, I wanted to help people, wanted to alleviate their emotional and physical needs. This hospital made me realize that it's not the case.

    I am tired of coming into work hearing the majority of nurses moaning and groaning about all the patients. There is so much negativism going on here that it made me a negative person as well. I do hope that the hospital that I am interviewing does not have this sort of attitude.

    There are three other interns I am with and they are sick of it as well. They are looking for some place else to work and had been applying to other hospitals.

    Again thank you for responding!

    I've tried to do the right thing by reporting a nurse similar to your preceptor. Nothing happened. They didn't care. I've learned after 8 years that every facility has at least a few unethical slackers. You can't change them. All you can do is do your job to the best of your abilities.
