Nasty nurses II

Published

I happily completed that admission because I took it as a learning experience. But I knew something was not right when another very experienced nurse came to me and said two of the older nurses were laughing because I was doing their pt's admission. They knew it was theirs to complete but that is how they are; lazy and bully-like. She told me if I don't stand up for myself I will burn out because they will try to do it again and again. I am very hardworking and actually after acting like I dont care I have actually earned respect from that nurse. I do my job to the best of my ability and nurses respect that. I even get called when they need IV's to be inserted. The same nurse that was acting weird and rolling her eyes each time I asked her a question is trying to be nice now. I do not mean to offend the seasoned nurses who actually stand up for what is right but many out there will throw you to the wolves before they answer a simple question. And that is the plain truth. It is human nature.

Dont get me started on the political bureaucracy of Nursing. So many things must change but it seems like a never ending cycle. In the meantime, I'm doing my time (lol) and learning as much as I can in the process.

I thought the title was about nurses that weren't hygienically correct; too bad it is about this...:down:

I am not sure what you are trying to accomplish with this post.

Are you asking for advice? Are you asking for validation?

Seems like a rocking-chair post.

Lot of action, gets you nowhere.

The other thread was closed for evaluation so you start another one? Sort of asking for trouble..................

LOL! The OP had another thread discussing the same topic and it was closed for staff review.

I remember the post...I think the thread did an unusual turn, but for the most part was OK from most posters perspectives. Oh well, hope this one fizzles out, or at least merge them.

Someone hijacked it and went on a tear; really inappropriate.

Nope "biter" witches hence the barbecue.
