    I probably wouldn't last very long, I would be disciplined for insubornidation!! I don't have time to tell the charge everytime I call a doctor, pull an IV, wipe a behind....if she wants to be that involved, I would tell her to take my patient assignment and I would enjoy the rest of my shift doing nothing......

    Sounds extreme in your case, but I will mention there is a nurse on eves that has had to become that way as a result of several bad experiences (at 11pm having a nurse call a doc who has been on call for 48 hours to ask him if the patient's home birth control pills can be continued when the dose isn't due until tomorrow afternoon - stupid stuff - not to mention the dangerous stuff that I won't go into.) I'm guessing that once she, like the nurse I am referring to, becomes comfortable with a person's skills and critical thinking ability, then she backs off, knowing that you will come to her when it's necessary.

    thanks for the advice everyone. What about quoting multiple ppl's posts??? Meaning, quoting one person, thenanother person, then another person, all in my one post?
