Each unit has a different culture; my unit the RN's work well together and we always have each others back and you can always ask any RN any question. This is what I like best about our unit, and I can't stand the politics. Unfortunately there is alot of it, and I've learned to only get involved when needed, and just let the other stuff slide. New grads on our unit get a 7 week orientation with a preceptor after the mandatory orientation thru nursing ed. Any other questions just post. Hope this helps.
