    Too strong of a personality?

    A definition has never been given to me when I’ve asked nor have examples been given. Everyone who’s said something just says “you have a strong personality and to be careful”. The closest I’ve gotten to an example was being told that asking questions to certain people might offend them. Like asking a nurse if she knew if the medication the patient had been on ended up getting maxed out because I had put the baby on it the night before and he was very close to being maxed out when I left. But to me that has nothing to do with a strong personality and simply just a question. I never call people out or “straight shoot“ about things I’m not happy with. I think I intimidate some people because I carry myself with confidence (not cocky) which comes from having been in the military. But other than interacting with people during report or making small talk with people around me I mind my business because my unit is very clique sand like high school. There is a specific group of nurses that regard themselves as the best on our unit and feel they are smarter than anyone else and I think this is where issues are coming from. but again I mind my business and do my job and leave. I more so wanted to know if this was something others encountered and if I was missing something. Not being given examples or a definition of how my personality is to strong frustrates me more than anything because I can’t change something that no one can give me clear examples of. But from reading these comments I think my previous conclusions over the year of this being a intimidation issue on other nurses part and not directly something I can control or fix is the most likely reason for the “strong personality “ comments. I have a very tough skin and am not upset per say about this more frustrated and confused. But I just need to remind Myself management charge and my educators have not brought this up so it’s just a gossip mill thing. If it were a true issue I wouldn’t have been hired from tech to RN I feel like.

    Too strong of a personality?

    I need advice on how to handle a situation at work. I was a tech on my unit for a year before becoming a RN there. I am finishing up my 6 months of my nurse residency orientation and so far have not had a single issue from my preceptors or educators regarding my progress abilities care or attitude. Since starting as a tech a year and a half ago I have been told multiple times only by floor nurses never managers charge or educators that I have a strong personality and that I need to be careful and tone it down because it bothers other nurses. I have each time stepped back toned my personality down (side note I’ve never been told I’m being rude or disrespectful and I would never do that the only complaint is my personality is to strong) and I’ve felt like things were fine for a couple of months and yet still get told I have to strong of a personality. When it has been brought up to me it is always in regards to rumors and people’s perception of me never any specific thing I’ve done or said. And I’m up so fed up with it. I have been told I am a very good nurse and very knowledgeable in my job and never had a single complaint about my nursing care or abilities. What should I do? should I be concerned since this has never come from management and only ever from basically the rumor mill? I just don’t know what to do it’s been a year and a half now of the same thing. I can’t keep doing this roller coaster of feeling everything is fine and then finding out people are talking behind my back.

    Howard Community College Fall 2017 Second Lottery

    I spoke with the admissions counselor and she said that all spring finishers are going to be waitlisted 😢 I finished my math class a month after the deadline so I was placed in the second lottery 😪

    Oh okay good I took stat too and transferred it in. I'm planning on doing my BA at WGU so as long as I have my RN thankfully I won't have to take anymore math classes. But I am so anxious for June! I want to just be able to relax but that won't happen until I get my hopefully acceptance letter lol

    Hey Stephymely! I think you'll be fine with your teas scores. From previous threads that I read people who just barely met the requirements were admitted so you'll be fine. From my understanding the priority classes are the most important thing for their admissions. What math class did you take? There's a lot of confusion around the math requirement for me cuz I've been told like 3 different things and the admissions office unfortunately wasn't very willing to help and answer my questions.

    Hey guys! I couldn't find a thread for the Fall '17 semester so I figured I start one so that we can all share and support each other while we anxiously wait for our acceptance letters. I'm just curious what every one else applied with and if you guys applied to any other programs. I got a adjusted score of 84% on my TEAS and a 99.7% on my reading, I have a 4.0 gpa, and all of my pre and co requisites completed. I have been working for 3 years now to meet the requirements for different nursing programs but because of the military and moving I have always been a class or two short for each program. This is the closest I have gotten to being able to get into a program and I am so excited but super nervous too. I wish June would hurry up and get here so I can know or not if I got in.
