I'm just starting NS this Fall, but I've worked in outpatient care for many years. One thing I've noticed in the office is that there seems to be a hierarchy in nursing that makes it difficult for some people to "fit in." Just wondering about others' observations on this.
When I worked at in-patient hospice a few years ago it seemed that the RNs didn't get along with the CNAs; the CNAs had their own social stuff going on and didn't chat with the nurses the way they did amongst themselves. Everyone seemed to think that the others weren't doing as much work as they were! I worked as unit clerk so I really didn't fit in with either group.
Observations on this from nurses and/or CNAs who've been working in-patient?
