I am always seeing new nurses less than two year become managers,her attitude correlates with her fear of not knowing bedside care and how to be an efficient manager to well so she would delegate to you everything she can not handle even though you are a new nurse. 2.She would not treat you as a new nurse because she is protecting her position(managerial) and she will pick on you so she will look better till you stop her or quit ER. This is happening all over the country with the new managers with no experience and good leadership,in corporate america this is call vertical abuse behavior , Many companies are not accepting this behaviors any more so keep it in mind .they new managers love to mandate , intinidate you with power or e mails but few of them will seat with the new nurses to talk their future needs in learning to achieve their goals in the nursing caeer.(to understand your staff you need to remember you were a nurse bedside once)They forget it very soon .They behave like Corporate executives and forget their role as patient manager care.3. I wuold suggest you to transfer to another departament with better orientation tool to give you the happiness of being a good nurse .4.Maybe another ER hospital like county teaching hospital,they are more focused in training residents and new nurses so you would get the help you need and protect your license.5. Do not panic this is a bad experience that will soon be in your past if you seat and think another options as a nurse .Remember nursing shortage is on rise they need you and many hospitals are willing to received you and give you the tool you need .LOOK for it .
