Due to certain situations, I'm gonna start taking agency shifts while I look for a permanent job. If I don't work, I will become homeless. I'm scared with agency as I've always like sufficient orientation in jobs so I feel like I know what I'm doing.
I'm a good nurse, a bit shy and self-depracating, but what worries me is that I know that doing agency, I could walk into a situation where the other staff are mean and if the charge wants, she can find anything wrong with me to ask that they not invite me back. It's a power they have.
I'm a good person but I've always had problems understanding why certain people are mean. Anyway, I am just hoping it is not a horrible experience. Any advice? Thanks all!!
P.S. I hope they don't fault me for asking questions, they shoudl realize that it's for patient safety I ask questions, not to annoy them. Also, I'm not to happy about the fact that once I do an agency assignment at this hospital, I can't apply for a permanent position at the hospital
