    Lol, I see that same arrogant attitude in some of the student nurses that come for clinicals. Pretty scary as these will be future nurses taking care of us and our families. Makes you want to open a care facility for retiring nurses, staffed by the retiring nurses.

    Tell me why does this make it right for nurses to eat their young? Did you step into your first job wearing a halo?

    Sounds like the start of the "mean girl club". after one week you knew how to fix the problems at the hospital. How much experience do you have?

    Maybe she meant "bottom of the barrel" as one who would apply for a charge job with no experience? Trying to be charitable here. Sounds like a newbie who is clueless.

    Trained! I hate working with Trainable Charge Nurses. They say they are paper trained, but when you work with them you always find little presents they leave in the hall. You have to hit them on the nose with rolled up newspaper and then you have to kick them outside so ....Wait! I'm talking about my dog, That's why I have been fired from a lot of places.
