    Sounds like this was their way of coping with the pain. I'd be more concerned with managing it than what coming out of their mouth. Besides every one has different tolerance levels.

    The problem with us Nurses we accept and start positions without getting a job description, hours, pay and out of norm expectations in writing. Always ask for this before you start otherwise your job description becomes a he said she said discussion!

    Just turn on your cellphone on record go close to him and say " oh doctor would you please repeat the whole conversation about nurses being monkeys? I just want to make sure I get an accurate description for human resources "
    That should fix him πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚

    Haha... I was much more patient in the ICU and yes some of the med-surg Nurses are awesome!.....some just push my buttons especially when they administer Lovenox right before i call the patient for a procedure under general anesthesia, or give patient a little water right before general anesthesia aaaarrggg!!! I just want to scream but i remain calm and cancel the procedure, let the surgeon do the yelling:-)

    Quote from blueorchid981
    Any difference of starting pay for new grads in Houston or Dallas?
    Is it cheaper to live in Houston or Dallas??
    Medical center Houston new grads get more than that in internship programs....Dallas is definitely more expensive than Houston.

    ECMOs are 2 RNs to 1 pt. 1 RN just for ECMO. Otherwise they have to get us a circulatory support to run the ECMO. I don't see how you can have 2 pts. ECMO pts in my experience are " a hot mess πŸ”₯! "

    I had sworn never date anyone from work! After seeing so much drama between people when they break up at work lol. Not to mention those residents that slept with any girl that thought was cute. One fellow slept with over 6 nurses on my floor! Imagine the drama when he married someone his parents preferred πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ it was hell scheduling assignments no one wanted to see the other πŸ˜‚
    I was the "mean scary charge nurse" that didn't flirt with the residents....or that's what one of the residents told me when he became the attending! I would rather have that title than some titles they gave nurses during their little parties!!!
    Met my hubby in comicon....yes I am one of those nerds😜 and love it!

    Sorry terrible communication skills for a management position. Don't let the first person diminish your worth. Check out the facilities that are hiring diploma nurses in your area. Keep in mind that the high acuity areas are now BSN only. Hang in there and when you get that position I would recommend joining an online diploma-BSN program. Best wishes.
    Ps...I agree with above post emphasize on the RN.

    "All great changes are preceded by chaos"....Deepak Chopra....
    Hence be happy that great Nurses are still fighting for an institution that caters to the uninsured....good luck at Parkland! " be the change you want to be":-)
