    I have 6 years of ICU experience. I don't believe in making new people feel stupid, we all make mistakes and this is where educating people comes in, but they aren't ever gonna learn or feel confident if you make them feel stupid and are mean. don't be mean to the newbies.

    As for the sleeping nurses - I just have to say that they have a job, same as you do, and if they cannot fulfill that role, something is amiss and should be addressed.
