    ok, ok. I understand what you are saying. You're absolutely right. It's not easy being judged or having biases formed about you, but thick skin, good attitude and filtering the incoming vibes, words, etc is the mark of a positive person. If you let it get to you and show it, it's going to happen even more.

    oh, i wouldn't worry about it too much if i were you.
    remember, this isn't high school anymore!

    The best advice possible for any new nurse is to avoid all the catty gossip. (and there's a lot of it!)
