I am a new RN. I worked as a tech for 3 years, but due to COVID had to move back home. I recently started a job back home as an RN and the culture is quite bad. Yes, many units have a culture of gossip but this is really to an extreme, like gossiping about anything and everything about fellow staff (sex life, family, appearance - nothing is off limits to them). I am gay and it is fairly obvious. I am confident in myself and my sexuality, but I have quickly learned my fellow RNs are quite homophobic and prejudice (race, religion, literally anything they can discriminate against they will). Yes everyone has their own opinions and beliefs, but openly speaking against it especially in healthcare shouldn't be a thing. Yes, you could report them but 1) it is pretty much unit-wide 2) retaliation 3) very obvious it would be me.
Understandably I am uncomfortable with this and I am not one to endorse or partake in gossip. The "benefits" and overall morale of the hospital is poor and they quite obviously do not care much for their employees. I know the golden rule is to stay at least a year, but I would like to move back to where I was and get a job there ASAP.
Would 6 months be feasible? How could or should I explain my short time period in my position?
