Quote from Ladybluebell
I used to think this was ridiculous when people made comments about losing their jobs or their license. But we have a new nurse manager that i think hates me and looks for things to ride me about. I think she would like to get rid of me and i do worry about lossing my job. Adminstration has way to much control over our practice.
Unfortunately your feelings are all too common amongst nurses , they think just because they do a good job they are immune to risk of losing their job , but with a change of manager , or ethos of the administration at your facility if you are targeted , you could walk on water , but they would still work to find a reason to be rid of you !!
The reason I advocate unionization so much , is I view my dues as an insurance payment , insurance that covers me from changes in management attitutude , for example now as a senior nurse I cost a lot , which could make me a target if budgets need to be cut , in order to be rid of me they would have to find and document just cause , not come up with some trumped up allegation and have security escort me off the floor .
