Good morning everyone!
I am a nurse with about eleven years experience in different settings...hospitals, home health and nursing homes. I decided after working a couple years in the nursing home to go back to the hospital. Well, the hospital I got hired at that's five minutes away, huge plus..is brand
new. When I interviewed with the manager of the unit, she had warned me that morale might be kinda low because they were short staffed. I already oriented on days a couple times, and didn't really notice low morale. Last night was my first time orienting on evenings and I did notice alot more low morale and alot of nurses talking about other nurses not doing this or that, and it really kinda disappointed me. Does anyone else deal with this? I don't want to get discouraged and start hating my job or anything. Is there a way to keep a positive attitude in a basically negative environment?
thanks so much and Happy Friday!!!
