I work in Assisted Living which is much more lax than a nursing home but nonetheless...
I am working through dealing with some jealous co workers as well.. Really irks me. Most of them are upset because I plan on going to school an being a RN. Meanwhile, they have all been working at the same place with poor pay for 4-5 years doing exactly what I am doing after a month and with much less passion.
They get really pissy if I dont answer their call lights when each person is assigned a section, in their own section while they just sit and chat it up.
Im still young(18) and have not really learned to deal with this type of people very well but I feel like it should turn out OK.
I cannot wait to get CNA cert. so I can go work in a hospital with real proffesionals. Certaintly couldn't be more unproffesional than some I work with.
The worst part is, it makes it somewhat diffcult dealing with them instead of focusing 100% on my work. It is hard to understand why some people are like this!?! Why can't they focus on themselves and their work??
