Im 33 and no longer a first year RN! When I changed careers, I really thought I would be alone as a male in this field... WRONG! My unit alone has 6 other RNs that are guys. If you are wondering if nursing is for you, dont subscribe to gender issues!
Clarification: The physicians are so nice to me, I mean it! The majority of the nursing staff, as I mentioned before are wonderful too. There are a number of people on the nursing (RN, CNA, LPN, Aides etc) group that are the issue.
Shay, did that develop over time? (or has this been your approach since the start?). Your feedback also makes sense, so thanks too!
Sounds like good advice. I appreciate your response.
I just got back from a rough night at work and I'm kind of upset about it. I work someplace that I love. I work with wonderful patients, and some fantastic nurses. The upside is that since finishing school, I have learned so much (honestly). The downside is the bullying that seems to go on with new people. I feel like I need to be on guard all the time. I wonder if this is a right of passage that some of you have dealt with.
