I have felt underappreciated, but at the same time, this goes throughout nursing. I made the decision long ago that I did not want to become an RN, because I clearly do not want their responsibility, nor am I really interested in experiencing their schooling. Nursing is a cat fight career, no matter how high you go, it seems, so, now, it really doesn't get to me. If an RN does not accept my assistance, then, believe me, I let them have the whole bag. I get to go home with less stress, and that is it. If I have a great RN, then, I will help her with all that I have, but if she isn't, then, let her take on the headaches.
