    Time to make some lemonade from that lemon of a job. Glad you kept your focus on YOUR goals, because obviously no one else there with authority cared enough to.

    its safe to say that I have never dealt with such unprofessional behaviour like the kind I'm dealing with now
    at 26 years old I am far more professional and mature then the person I'm dealing with now can ever be...
    which is why she doesnt speak to me I think..
    ah well, the resume's done, as is the cover letter, as is the letter to HR and the union...
    there is so much going on right now on the unit I work on, its hard to make heads or tails out of it , which is why I go in to work, do my thing and get out of there ASAP
    greener pastures await, and I'm going to find them..
    thanks for all your support and suggestions
    sometimes it really is about your wants and needs instead of what others want and need from you...

    Maybe the universe is sending you a message to move on....And, I cannot BELIEVE you are someone who hates the fact they got forced to days. As a night nurse I totally understand how you feel but I didn't think that particular rotation actually occurred in the real world. I went on line and filled in the blanks on a resume for hospitals in the area I chose, and they called me right away. I didn't like the money situation and turned them down and they keep hounding me to come on board, which is a new sense of power base for me. You are experienced and you will do well...Just stick to your guns and hang in there. Listen to the message....Be well and good luck!

    How very true. This will not be your last experience in dealing with management types that have no clue. The behave in ways that even children know better.

    The probem is the never received the education needed to do thier job. They sometimes accept the job thinking they got it because they were qualified. They only begin to seek education for management after they are in that position. Some don't seek it out at all.
    We need to prepare ourselves before we get there. You know what is the right thing to do but you also need to learn how to do the right thing under heavey adversity. Your manager's adversity is her boss and her boss's boss etc. She is taking advantage of you because you are less of a threat than her boss. She is acting this way because she is scared herself and doesn't know any other way, to respond to that. She never learned.
    Key is get an education in management and leadership skills now. Make yourself a perpetual student. Take seminars on your own. Read books take classes. The $$ is well worth it in the long run. Learn how to apply what you learned. Learn about communication, assertion, dealing with people.

    Even if you choose to never take a management position you will emerge a powerful leader. It sounds like you already have the makings of it now. Keep your values and principles directly in front of you. You will do fine. You are professional.

    By the time you are 46, you'll probably say "I thought the people in the job I had when I was 26 were unprofessional, but I had no idea at that time this was so widespread!"

    You'll do fine and good luck.

    Scratching their watches and winding their butts...that's all management seems to know how to do....because they sure as HELL couldn't do our jobs. Get out of Dodge and leave 'em in the dust.
