Has anyone experienced encountering self centered, evil, vindictive nurses working as a nurse especially in LTC? I am an agency nurse who tends to be pleasant but keep my mouth shut most of the time to fly under the radar. Sometimes to get though a shift I pretend that I am on top of a mountain or I hide in the bathroom for 10mins to recoup. I've noticed that nursing attracts women who are extremely catty and hate to be in peace. I keep an air pod in one ear to tune out the entire day and dumb gossipy convos heard all throughout the unit. Many nurses have no empathy and speak to residents like they are stupid old farts. I am trying to get out of this field ASAP. Has anyone else experienced coming across some of the most evil women while being a nurse?
