    God forbid that a nurse should ask for 10 minutes to regroup at a moment when she is overwhelmed.The fact that this is even a question demonstrates just how powerless we can become on tbe workplace.There is nothing wrong with taking ten minutess to get organized as long as no harm came to any patient.

    With all the publicity involved with this unique resignation, may be difficult to obtain another nursing position for this new RN.
    Don't let your frustration with workplace lead you to career suicide via unprofessional behavior.

    Quote from sarahnp103
    I want to become a psychiatric nurse practitioner however I don't think R.N. duties would give me experience that would help me in that career ex: giving insulin, giving pills, helping patients brush teeth. The two career paths I could take is either getting a BA not in nursing and then doing an accelerated MSN program in which I won't have to be an R.N. or I can get a BSN, be a nurse and then pursue my MSN. Although I would really love to avoid being a nurse beforehand in what ways would being a nurse beforehand help in a NP career, specifically psychiatric?
    Is that seriously what you think we do? If so you have absolutely no idea what nursing is all about and frankly I find your viewpoint to be insulting.

    Exactly--how do I respond professionally to such unprofessional conduct by a colleague? Ignore it? I mean, what if continues?
    What if it was the RN who felt that you were not a good fit for the unit or appropriate for the job? You are projecting and making assumptions about your classmate when you have no objective reason to know so. Did the manager say, "based upon Lisa's impressions of you at the peer interview we will not be offering you the job"? I doubt it.
    There is exactly zero indication of "such unprofessional conduct" in your description of events.

    Be professional

    Don't assume the paranoid victim role.

    Move on in search of the next opportunity
