I was really excited about transitioning from LTC to a med-surg position with my current employer. However, after 7 weeks of days (hired for nights), I am so tired of hearing everyone talk about people behind their backs. My old job was not like this. I don't participate. Then, today I was pulled behind closed doors and told that the perception of me is that I am a stereotypical "lazy" nightshift nurse, who needs to take more initiative. I am not saying I am perfect. I am not. But I am not lazy. At least I made it home before I started crying! Just wanted to vent.
