    My favorite similar situation was a particular CCU RN who always complained about her assignment, no matter if it was the hardest or easiest. One of the charge nurses started to just give her the worst assignment every shift. I asked him about it, and his response was, well at least this way I can feel for her when she complains! I loved it!

    Oh Suzie, if only this weren't true. It's totally why people shouldn't get all judgmental and negative if a nurse has been fired.
    *** Oh heck I have been fired from 3 nursing jobs. One of them I actually deserved and should have been fired for (invited a surgical resident to the parking lot for a butt kicking) the others were BS. I brag about it, no problem One thing I have learned is that while being fired IS a big pain in the neck, it's not the end of the world, at least not for me. Having been though the experience several times I don't worry about it much anymore. Just not that big a deal for me. The main thing I worry about is not getting fired, it's having to go through orientation at my next job, Ug.

    One of a sad reality that we have to see in this profession. It can be frustrating and downright sad.

    I had a nurse manager in a hospital setting, complete ***** on wheels. She wrote everyone up and made our lives hell. Finally, after administration got compliaints from doctors about how unprofessional she was, they fired her (took a couple of years). She ran off and married the assistant charge nurse, who I was friends with. He told me 5 years later that she had never been employed since because everywhere she applied, there were nurses she had burned. Sometimes these people get what they deserve.

    PM I think it is great that you bounced back, in spite of unfair treatment. Not every nurse does. I have seen this junk happen to experienced nurses and GNs. I guess the GNs were more shellshocked, however, than the experienced nurses. I have seen people go through some real pain and suffering, b/c they put their heart and soul into a position, only to have it ripped apart--for idiotic reasons--and then have to try to explain the discharges. Sometimes nurses have to list the position as experience. One place kept screwing over new GN/RNs right and left, and I just couldn't get why. Isn't such stupidity a waste of time? I have seen people go out of their way to sneakily, or in some cases quite openly, weed a nurse out of units. It gets nauseating after a while.

    It's just so sad to me that so often it's about the same things that the Apprentice is about--screw someone before you think they will screw you. . .or at least someone is so insecure they think someone else is going to screw them or get more props they they will. And then there are those people that just continue to play the power games b/c they get off on it, and b/c they can--at least for a while. Sickos.
    This is brilliant!!

    I'm an old lady who's getting ready to graduate with my BSN end of this year and I love this assessment! Many medical residents probably need to have a can of whoop--s brung out on'em. I've had a butt load of non-nursing jobs and been "let go" a time or two over the years and it really does not end your life. Knowing how screwy work place politics can be, you pays your money and you takes your chances. If it doesn't work out, it just doesn't. I also agree that orientation is a drag.
