I was told in my eval that I have a perfectionist personality and that it may iritate others. YES - I do have an (anal) personality but it has served my patients well. Either it is done right and in the best interest of my patient or I will stand tall and take the heat until it is right. It upsets me when I see how accountability in nursing has slipped over the years. It seems alot of people have the "I, Me, or that is good enough, or let the next person worry about it".
I am to the point of thinking about changing jobs because of these feelings. I have worked for the same facility for 23 years and always get high evals as well as very good support from the providers.
Am I getting too old for nursing??
