    The two year thing maybe true, maybe not. I am not against anyone who like to show their confidence, as long as they don't put patients in danger or their coworkers in misery. I think it depends on individual person's personality rather than number of years as a nurse. I can't stand those two-yearer who are snobs, I also can't stand those nurses who greet you with "I have 30, 40, 50 years of experience in nursing." My response to the latter is usually "so why are you still in the same job?"
    Some nurses happen to enjoy bedside positions. Management holds zero interest for me; my MSN in education is merely planning for those days when I will no longer be able to physically handle the demands of bedside nursing. I do enjoy my job most days. And I really don't get what's so bad about a nurse sharing how much experience they have- it lets newer nurses know that they know what they're talking about and that they can answer questions and serve as a source of information.
