does anyone else work with a nurse that just grate's your nerves?? there is this one nurse that i really can't stand to be around for too long! she has only been a rn for @ 1yr (it took her 3x to pass the boards) now don't flame me i realize some people have test anxiety, but i am positive that getting totally wasted the night before one test did not help. anyway, she acts all high and mighty, extremely unprofessional also. i reminded her this morning before i left to make sure all staff adhered to the rules (strictly) because jcaho is surveying us right now. she responds, who cares, i'm not going to make anyone do anything, i don't care>>>>what's up with that? she acts like she knows soooooo much more than those who have been in nursing for years.
she just makes me so madddddd!!!
oh, but of course when i do follow up on the bad things that any of us would report i get brushed off!! it was i who must have misunderstood the situation or i just didn't hear what i thought i heard. on my floor it seems that dayshift can do no wrong. night shift gets the short end of the stick.
can we say industrial size ky!!! or as us nighters like to say...just give it to my dry!
okay, i know i am ranting and raving...sorry, but you guys listen. i am not the only one that feels this way at work though at least.
(and please no flaming, i wasn't directing my comments about dayshift or other remarks to anyone but this particular nurse and floor)

"don't flame me ...and please no flaming,"
It may well be that this kind of attitude is more than a small part of the problem. Since you are a permanent charge nurse, I would strongly recommend that you take some management and supervision courses, since your facility doesn't appear to have given you any such training. (This is the number one problem in the nursing field, IMHO.)
Reading "Managing for Dummies," might be a good start.
