    I hope the original poster is noticing how many nurses with years of collective experience are all complaining about difficult certain RN's can be at report. It looks like it's something endemic to our profession and s/he will need to keep it in perspective and rise above. If you know you've given good care, then recognize it as the problem of that one RN and don't take it personally. Take care of yourself and stay positive. The first year of nursing is so hard. Pat yourself on the back for getting this far.

    Good luck on your journey.

    Thank you all for your replies. It comforts me to know that this has happened to other RNs (not that I would wish this on anyone of course). I will do my very best to not take it personal when I give her report. I guess I just needed to hear that I'm not the only one this happens to. Darn those nit picky report receivers! Thanks again.

    It sucks but all you can do is keep your head down and remain helpful and diligent.

    Weather it and you'll be accepted eventually.

    I'm four months into my first RN job and it's only just now starting to feel like I am part of the team.
