Hello this was brought up to me so now I'm sharing it with you all, I had a new R.N. nurse come to me in tears because another R.N. treated and talked to her very badly when she asked her basic questions, and in the midst of her tears she stated her brother was also a new nurse and doctors even help him when he had a problems she didn't seem to understand why women wouldn't like to help women, I have also seem to witness in this field men do seem to get along alot better than women, you will find a few nurses that will help you when in need but that is a very few, I don't know if it's due to the shortage everybody is overworked or underpaid, but we are killing the younger generation of nurses who do try and probaly will oneday make good nurses if they can handle the stressful enviroment any suggestions?

Wow your workplaces suck---- or do they??? I have MOSTLY supportive, caring and wonderful coworkers, some of which I consider friends (not all). The few who tried to " eat " me as a young 'un, well, I put em in their place. I let them know in no uncertain terms, they were picking on the wrong person. And they quit, never to bother me again. But I always treat them WITH RESPECT,and I do mean always. I don't work in Utopia, but it's very workable and most of the time pleasant to be around my coworkers.
I guess we sometimes we get what we put out. (karma?) Barring passive-aggressive and catty behavior on YOUR parts, as well as those you complain about, you can have a wonderful time with your female coworkers----but you have to take some initiative yourselves NOT to propogate it. We get what we GIVE often enough, really. That is not news.
I love where I work and we are ALL female. I have been there for many of my coworkers thru very tough times and they for me. When I was hospitalized, they visited me (it was a different hospital 20 miles up the road) and took the time to send a card and flowers. All females doing this? Very little backbiting and witchy behavior going on there. But I think it has a lot to do with taking responsibility for ones own behavior and refusing to participate in any catty behavior they DO see. Take the bull by the horns and take action to STOP it, if at all possible. It really does help.
