Starting my first nursing job (as a GPN) has been very exciting, and different. I did three days of orientation with the aides, which I think was smart. Really got to know the residents and floor routine. They are some very hard working people and I have so much respect for them!!
However, the nurses, have been just so receptive. Really talking me through prepping for NCLEX, giving me tips on LTC nursing etc.
Yet, I'm sensing their is about 1 or 2 CMT's/CNA's that just seem to well.....i don't know, make it clear I'm on "their block". It's a CMT who is much older then me, about in her 40 or 50's and an aide about the same. I smile at them, offered to help when I can. Answer their call lights, but they just don't seem receptive to me. I say goodbye at the end of the day, and just get a "yeah" reply.
How do I work this angle to build a rapport with them. I did hear those two snickering about me being new and so forth. Advice?
