    Guys, if u don't like a topic, then don't click on it. Who is making u come into this forum???? I can assure u there are hundreds of other topics to read on this board. That is the point of these boards, to come here & discuss what is on your mind. I think they call it freedom of speech. I don't mean to seem rude but there are plenty of subjects on this board that I don't care to read about so I don't.......
    I do not have to like a topic to reply to it, but i have every freedom to reply to it, and gave a reason why i did. And i don't believe that ignoring this, as you're suggesting, is going to solve the problem. Neither does the phrase itself, which was my POINT.

    Um is this of a sexual nature??

    How about young nurses bite the hand that feed them?

    I doubt that was out of a sexual nature, i think it was supposed to be funny.

    We are not saying we don't want to read about it -we are challenging the notion that

    NURSES

    eat their young. That's all and it is part of the discussion.

    Hi Steph, o.k. I hearyou but what do you mean "we are challenging the notion". I don't know what you mean by that because people are saying they have experienced it (I for one) so how can that be challenged????????

    We are challenging the stereotype that nurses as a whole eat their young.

    We are saying that individuals, in every profession, treat co-workers rudely or badly or whatever.

    I'm positive you have experienced being treated badly by a co-worker . . . .but to lump it into one sack and say that "nurses eat their young" bugs the bejesus out of some of us.

    Marie, then quit griping about the topic........ Also you should read my post better, I don't think the topic should be ignored, obviously I think experienced nurses should help inexperienced nurses. I'm always the first to help a new nurse, cna, or whatever. Please read my post before you comment that I say ignore it. The only thing you need to ignore is a topic that you stated being sick of seeing......:angryfire I don't really see why this is a heated debate, hopefully some of the not so friendly nurses will come in here and read this and they hopefully will be a little nicer to the next nurse, cna or whoever needs thier help next time.

    Thank you and I can underdstand your point. I just happen to think it happens a little more often than it should is why it is easy for me to lump them all together.

    Then read my posts better, and realize that i am NOT "griping" (rude) about the topic, what i am "griping" about is how that phrase is used (a LOT) an excuse for bad behavior. The phrase is not the solution, it only aggravates the problem, and i pointed out to someone WHY the topic MIGHT seem taboo on this board!

    Good GRIEF!
