Having been a float nurse and a travel nurse for many years, I have found out this.......my attitude is what causes me to be able to survive and thrive on any given unit. There will always be nurses that will try to provoke in whatever way, but if I was to provoke back, my shift would be miserable. I have found that if I just smile and be friendly and let them know I am there to help, by the end of the shift I am one of them and they are inviting me back. Why would you want to become the very problem that you are venting about? If you have been a nurse any length of time, you should know stresses are high and not everyone responds to you with peaches and cream.
If this is something that bothers you so much that you have to go to management with it, maybe float nursing is not for you. And heaven forbid, don't ever become a travel nurse! Please take this as constructive advise and not as an attack. Sometimes we have to look to ourselves for change.
