You should list your this place on the non nurse friendly list so that everyone knows to avoid it.
This is the kind of stuff you do not find out during an interview.
This kind of crap is why nurses leave.
they do not deserve to benefit from the services we offer if they insist on turning us into housekeepers and wait staff.
That is not what i went to school to become. I could have been a housekeeper or waited on people without a formal education.

I know. I have been there and I have even watch people disappear out of the corner of my eye when it actually came time to stand up.
What you have said is so true. That is why many nurses have left and many more are planning to leave. You do get sick and tired of it.
The funny and tragic thing is that the only one who will be left are those that will be huddled in the corner, and of course saying why did not anyone do something and why wont someone stick up for us?
If you think about it, it is ironic and fitting that in the long run they will suffer in more ways than one. They will have ever increasing demands as well as higher and higher nurse to patient ratios as their rewards. On top of it pay will continue to decline as the yearly cost of inflation continues to accumulate.
This is the reason I have said several times to myself, it is time to get out and find something else and let them have and suffer with what they insist on holding on to by their very lack of personal actions.
Now why would a young person looking for a good career with a future choose nursing or for that matter stay for very long if they come in?
