I recently ended a 3 yr engagement @ a rural hospital. From the moment I started there I was treated terribly! Bullying and degredation were part of everyday life. We lost 85% of our staff every year to this. We closed 60% of our beds due to understaffing (re:mass resignations due to employee treatment by mgmt and senior staff) Right now Im unemployed and reconsidering my options. I feel, if thats nursing....I want no part of it!!!! I spent so much time in school and loved my profession. This feeling of being undermined and abused is haunting me...I need to move forward, but am terrified of working in a similar environment. I developed severe cardiac issues over this. Any advice? Im sad!!!!
