    This type of bullcrap also happens at my hospital,and I hate it! As much as we would like to "just keep to ourselves" it is very difficult to not get labled as being hard to get a long with. You have to remain your friendly self but keep your mouth shut! I find it very unfortunate that people thrive on this type of behavior, but it is a way of life, i am convinced of that. Best of Luck.

    This post is making me really sad. I was hoping this would be a profession where employees acted professionally and were there for the benefit of others. I guess I am naive.

    Please, don't think you are naive. There are lots of nurses who are still very professional in what they do everyday. However, there are people in this career who have been through it all and are fed up with the politics and such. :stone Maybe they just quit trying. Who knows? I do know I don't like the situations I am put in on a daily basis, but I try hard anyway to make the best of it. Where other people find faulter, I put on a happy face. I avoid complaining, but I do verbalize my opinions when necessary in a professional manner.

    I worked hard to be where I am in life and career! I earned the right to put on my stark white uniform, where my graduation pin, and the name tag with the LPN tacked on the end of my name. And I am proud of it! I am a professional. Almost everyday I have someone comment to me about my professional appearance and duties. I believe we could all use a reminder of what this career really is and should mean to us. If it weren't a professional career we wouldn't be going to Colleges, and Universities to learn what we do. We wouldn't be earning BSN's, or getting certified in specific areas. If we weren't professionals we would have just another job.
