1. As Nurses our focus is on the patient,the client,the resident,but at what point if any,,a nurse should expect some recognition for positive accomplishments?
    And if negative feedback is all one receives,despite positive accomplishments,should this just be accepted as part of the territory?

    Yes, I agree. When do we hear what we do right. I was told once that humans know if they screwed up, but seldom recognize when they did something right. That is probably because we are told and shown so often how awful we are , but not how good we are. Moral of this story is: Tell someone that they did something right. (Look out though, they might pass out. Or think you are nuts, or at least kidding.)
