Just my opinion but I don't think your impediment has anything to do with it. People, and yes nurses, too, are just plain MEAN nowadays. I think the nurses that have a problem with you are the type that wants that PERFECT REPORT from a PERFECT NURSE about PERFECT PATIENTS so that she can have a PERFECT SHIFT. There is a lot of throat-cutting and back-stabbing in nursing. If you spoke perfectly, then they would only find something else about you to gripe about. Nursing is stressful. As a nurse, we are supposed to treat and accept our customers with respect. At every facility that I go to as an agency nurse or float nurse, they tell us that our co-workers are our customers as well....in fact, EVERYBODY that pulls into the parking lot are customers. You are a patient wearing a uniform
on a good day, just like everybody else in the nursing field. The holier-than-thou'ers need to realize that! They wouldn't treat you that way if you were lying in a hospital bed....at least they shouldn't. Patients do get discharged, go home, and report back to work.....as nurses, doctors, lawyers, etc., but most importantly, as CUSTOMERS!
So, depression pills for you? I think it should be AGGRESSION pills for them!!!!
Again, just my opinion. So pick yourself up and do what you do.
