    i agree with u first year...
    in the unit where i am working at present, most doctors are very careful in dealing with these nurses coz in fairness, these nurses knew their stuff well and once they'll (the docs) be rude, nobody is beside them to carry out their orders... nor assist them or nobody will be there to defend them in times of crisis..

    I actually found in both nursing and my former career that managers/doctors were frequently NICER to foreigners. I think it has to do with natural tendancy to be more polite to someone from somewhere else, whereas they are comfortable (some of them) being totally rude to a "native".

    re: rude thing to say.

    How so? I can't imagine anyone who has lived where there is a significant Asian or Latino population not agreeing that those communities band together and help take care of each other, so why is it "redneck" to note it. After all, it's an admirable quality.

    Instead of loosely calling everyone a "rude" , why not emulate them where it behooves us to do it? We'd have a better time as American nurses if we took care of each others backs more ourselves.

    first year I totally agree with you. I don't believe what u said to rude/racist. Acutally it's a matter of personal experience. In my experience this too has been the case and not just with the doctors, but towards other nurses as well. Right or wrong, it does happen and it is a reality in some workplaces with some nurses.

    what a rude thing to say.


    You felt the need to say it twice? I think you got your point across.

    How could you possibly argue with the second one????? If someone read that post alone, without your first quote, no one would know what she was talking about.

    I ask everyone, please, keep personal attacking and stereotypic comments out of posts and stay on topic so this thread does not have to be closed. Please, answer the OP's questions in earnest/to help or leave this thread alone.

    I can also see in some hosptials or units, where nurses from other nations MAY just feel they need to band together in order to protect themselves. Perspective is everything in cases like this.

    At my hospital, nurses of all nations are pretty much treated similarly. Drs who are "rude" will not change for them, but they are not MORE rude to them, either.
