Just wondering if I'm the only one out there. I experience bullying ALL the time at work. I work in an ambulatory care setting where the most of the physicians and the RNs/LVNs/MAs are friends. They go out partying, drinking, kids have play dates, friends on fb, and etc. I've noticed that the people not in the "in" crew, like myself, are subject to constant criticism and ridicule. When I was new and asked for help, I was told to "figure it out" myself. I hear them gossiping and laughing about me in the break room. One woman even started a rumor about me being a prostitute/escort!
She went to our manager and convinced her to fire me because I'm an incompetent nurse but I was transferred to another department instead. What's funny is that many of them are LVNs that cannot pass their rn-nclex if it could save their life. It's ridiculous. Some of the physicians even let the MAs do procedures that are only in the nursing scope of practice.
Has anyone else experienced anything similar? I still wonder why I was targeted.
