I am so tired of being in charge! Making sure everything runs smoothly, putting out fires all day, and still trying to get my work done. I want to be a worker bee for a change, just give me a task and I will do it with no problem! Just settled another dispute between co workers and I am tired of it. I work in a military medical clinic staffed with civilian nurses and military corpsman, and at times the relationship between the two can become quite disfunctional. Of course everyone knows that I am in nursing school
, so when I make a decision that appears to benefit the nurses, the corpsman grumble, and when a decision that seems to benifit the corpsmans the nurses grumble. I manage about 30 people and I tell you its over rated! Ive been at my present unit for 2 years and am counting down the seconds until I retire. I manage the staff based on written policy and common sense and do not play favorites, but notice that if I allow it, I will be played by the nurses and the corpsman. At time I feel as if I am in a vise having the life squeezed out of me!!!!!!!!. I know that I shouldnt say this now as I am not yet a nurse, but I will be happy just being the worker bee as I need a break from management..
