I would love any words of encouragement. Overall, my orientation as a new NP is going well, but internally I am struggling. I keep wondering if I have made a mistake. I admit, much of my turmoil is the challenge of going from being an expert RN that everyone turned to, to the new kid and new NP that has to learn and earn the trust.
In particular, there is an RT that wants to challenge every order I give. Last night I caught her rolling her eyes and huffing at having to do something I'd ordered. I suspect comments were made in the patient's room about how she disagreed with my orders, given the way the family member acted when I went back in. When I later decided to escale the support I am pretty sure I overheard her say, "Well duh!" in front of the parent.
Honestly, I am not sure where this hostility is coming from, other than she just may be a difficult person to deal with. If she wasn't so aggressive, I would love to discuss with her why we each prefer a different approach and maybe in the future we can get there.
