    My 1st manager was a nightmare, evil and possessed by Satan herself. She's gone - last I heard she's a staff nurse now and was having a hard time in orientation.....LOL.

    Our new CNO is awesome. She is patient care, staff oriented and doesn't give a flip about the budget. She tells upper management all the time that if her staff is happy, the patients are happy and more people will come to hospital (we are VERY small) and her budget will increase. Not a day goes by that she doesn't attempt to make our life a bit happier.

    We are actually getting a new manager in our ER.....we'll see how it goes with her......

    I don't love my manager. Yet, I'm very loyal and rarely say no to her requests. She rarely says no to my requests either. Over the last 15 years she's done quite a lot for me. I pretty much always get the schedule I want. She's maxed me out paywise. She's given me all my requests for time off, which shift I want to work. Over and over she's been there for me.

    I can nit pick over things I don't like such as sometimes she's inconsistent in how she treats us. Often she'll talk to us about personal stuff in front of other folks.

    She has a rotten job trying to satisfy a sometimes selfish and whining staff who constantly bombard her with their unhappiness and demands (what do you mean I can't make up my own hours and come in when I please? Now that my orientation is over, I need to tell you I can't work any weekends or Fridays, and I need 2 weeks off starting tomorrow. So I called out a 7:00 20 times the last six months, whats your problem? This nurse doesn't like me. on and on and on.)

    Then she gets it from above about having to cut staff, cut supply use.

    She also has to listen to family complaints.

    She has a rotten job. I'm glad she's doing it and sticking with it, because I couldn't do it.
