Like chare said, nurses, even older ones, can remember what they are told without writing it all down.
I've been a nurse for 5 years, and I just assumed this was not possible.
In all seriousness, I know nurses that write very little down when receiving report and they read the previous nurse's charting to gather most of their information. Maybe this is her style, and she has taken report from you before and knows that she can gather what she needs by reviewing your charting.
OTOH, may she does not like you. Well, that is her problem. Report off to her and get on with it. Not too long after I started in the ER, I was reporting off to a more experienced nurse (who also happened to be an 'older' nurse in the age sense). He said to me "that order for urine was put in 5 minutes before the end of your shift and you did not go in a straight cath them?" It turns out the pt was on chemo and chemo pt's are not cathed (at least in our ER, per policy of our hospital's CA center) d/t risk of neutropenia. Anyway, I politely informed the nurse of such--I wasn't stand-offish....just politely informed him why I did not run in a straight cath the pt--and moved on. This nurse eventually "warmed up" to me. The nurse in your situation might warm up to you. For now, go about your business, be confident (not cocky) in your interactions with her, and don't let her get to you.
