    Why do you think we eat our young or even our own? Why do you think there is bullying in nursing? Why do you think we almost act like we are out to get other nurses?

    We eat our young because they are crunchy and taste good with Catsup. Also they are way more tender than old nurses.

    Please edit you post into readable paragraphs. You will get a lot more people reading it that way. I gave up about 5 lines in.
    Not to mention the poll is very skewed in one direction. It's essentially a yes/no question where all of the answers are yes. What about those who don't have issues?

    OP- you used the pronoun "we".
    So, why do you eat your young?

    Or, are you fantastically bored and trolling?

    Bullying, when it actually happens, happens in every field. It's not exclusive to nursing, or even the medical field. People can act like jerks in any setting.

    However, I find the term most misapplied and over-used. You'll have to be more specific if you want real feedback.

    Because Im around you people for 12 hours a day, I lose my temper and start munching.
    There is bullying in nursing because you weaklings make it so easy.
    We ARE out to get other nurses. They want my job.

    You have bluntly put your finger on the down and dirty side of being an OR nurse. Depending on your facility you will seldom give medications, start an IV, place a NG tube, monitor telemetry, etc., you may get to put in foley's from time to time. Room turn over is king, move em in, move em out.

    It is what a RN circulator does, acts as a gopher for the surgeon, anesthesiologists, and scrub tech so they can give good patient care.

    Having OR, circulating experience is hard to come by so OR circulating RN's are a rare breed, there is usually a high demand for experienced OR nurses. You may want to stick it out to get a years worth of experience? But I can't foresee the future, whether or not you would easily transition into a bedside floor nursing job with "only" OR circulating experience after a year.

    Perhaps when you get a reputation with your manager as an eager hard working nurse you could ask about working pre-op or PACU? Or maybe you could find a part time, per diem, position as a floor nurse somewhere?

    Just completed my ASN degree and decided I don't like patient care, what jobs can I get that don't include bedside care?

    "there's bad weather coming TONIGHT that I've known about for a week!!! Obviously I can't get to work!!! How can my manager/job punish me for this???"

    (I understand there are extenuating circumstances in some cases, BUT there is also lack of preparation, feeling "special" that they shouldn't have to go to work in bad weather, etc.)
