Quote from General E. Speaking, RN
Wow. Sorry you are having difficulties. Personally, I despise those who are petty. The ultimate goal is to care for patients. Unfortunately, nursing is dominated by females and females can be caddy. Maybe you need to change jobs? I work with a great bunch of nurses who are all about teamwork. Nursing is a 24 hour operation. What one shift cannot do the other should pick up. Sometimes, however, the slackers take advantage of this situation and screw it up for the rest of us.
I always try and speak positively about nursing (even if I've had a day from hell). Mainly because I am hoping secretly that there will be some good nurses out there when I get older
there absolutely are
good nurses out there, and always will be.
the problem is, the bitter ones, are the ones who get the attention.
sadly, i do have to agree that i would not recommend nsg to anyone, anymore.
i also agree, it has to do with working in a predominantly female field.
heck, there are even a handful on this bb, that are truly immature (being nice, here) and they haven't a clue...
they're too busy blaming others.
anyways, i digress.
it is tragic that it is the way it is.
acting honorably and virtuously in nursing, often ends up biting you in the butt.
and it gets old. :-(
