Healthcare has a pecking order and these pre and student docs are already gearing up for it. They know the attendings will chew on them, and they are practicing for when they can get away with chewing on the nurses. It's like kick the cat.
Some baby docs will keep this in the back of their mind, even while nurses save their sorry butts. They know they will need us for a time to help them through their schooling, and treat us like mamas...its our 'job' to care for them in babyhood. A few of these ingrates will <gasp> in time come to the grudging conclusion nurses are our own profession, valuable, and worthy of respect.
Others will conveniently forget when they are finished and turn into the same jerks their mentors are. Unfortunately they pass down the jerk personalities. <sigh>
Don't let 'em get to you. When docs behave like jerks I always remind myself this is their choice, their problem. Why waste my breath on a jerk when I'm there for the patient, not them.
