So I have done everything in Med/Surg, IVF Lab, Endo, ER Overflow.... Now I'm in Perinatal Float and they are training me to the NICU. The staff there is well known through the hospital as "clique'y" and difficult and many have been there for a hundred years so they pretty much run the unit. Anyway, I have been warned and warned that I won't like it. Oh sure, I'll like the work, but the staff will make me want to run.
Well, I've been up there for a month now. About half the staff is friendly... the rest are pretty chilly. They don't acknowledge me or even look me in the eye. Nothing. I'm pretty easy to get along with though... just layed back/passive. At first, I hated going in there. It's hard to deal with the chilly reception for 12 hours a shift. People are starting to warm up to me now. I'm liking it more and more. The work is pretty cool and totally different then anything I've done thus far.
