    working in a hostile environment.

    this is the comment one of the other nurses let me know the tech was saying about me.... this is because I am a new nurse in a unit! WHY do morons have to speak! How can I go to work and not put gum in her hair:devil:? What should I say to her the next time she tries to tell me how to do my job, she does not even do her job but loves to boss me around because I am an new nurse!

    working in a hostile environment.

    I love my unit but may need to leave because of hostility from coworkers. Does it look bad on my resume to transfer from CCU to a tele or med surg floor? How hard is it to get into a unit if you work as a floor nurse?

    working in a hostile environment.

    I absolutely agree, but my concern is the amount of anxiety these people cause me, and the fear of being set up for failure. I honestly worry about not getting any help when I truly need it. That is a very scarry feeling when patients are the ones who will suffer.

    I would love to transfer to another ICU but am unsure on how to do it, who do I ask without stepping on toes?

    working in a hostile environment.

    I am just about done with my orientation on my unit... I have been working in a severe hostile environment. I found some things out that my preceptor said about me which makes me very uncomfortable. she is also the main charge and makes the schedule.... I told her honestly I was unhappy and asked for a transfer to another unit. I need some support and advice on what I should, and should not do while waiting for a spot in another unit to open up. I feel so uncomfortable that I do not speak other than hello or good morning to anyone, I get butterflies in my stomach and feel like I can not be comfortable! I have plans to stay a critical care nurse, I love it and would like to stay in that setting, so I feel stuck! Does anyone have advice?

    working in a hostile environment.

    I work in a specialized unit I started as a new grad and have suffered for months with hostile coworkers. I love being a critical care nurse, but need a change. I like the unit because I feel very close to my patients and their families I can be investigative. Does any one absolutely love where they work and are not so bogged down that they rally can focus on pt. care? thanks

    want to change from ccu to icu

    Has anyone made the change from CCU to an ICU? The CCU has given me wonderful experience but is an extremely hostile environment. I started CCU as a new grad and went through the orientation and just hate going to work I love my patients but despise the work ethic of the other staff members. Any advice on things I should focus on to make the change? thanks

    new CCU nurse

    it may sound funny but I had the same problem and went out to by critical care nursing made increadibly easy... it made the jargon digestible and I researched what I learned from there. good luck

    "Nurses are not professionals"

    Preceptor Friend or Foe??

    i had the exact same experience, my preceptor taught by making fun of me when i made a mistake and said things like "well that will be the last time you do that" I am not an idiot i saw a change in her attitude towards me, and i stopped learning. So I asked to change preceptors, and my manager talked to her, it got worse!. So i went into her office and told her i was not lerning from her.... and the one thing that got her attention was when I said. I feel uncomfortable asking questions and that is dangerous. The first two weeks were uncomfortable but now I love my new preceptor, and I am doing well! It is HARD to stnd up for yourself, and especially when you are being bullied! You can do it I promise,,,,,,!!!!

    Racism in the workplace

    there are so many things to overcome in this world and rasicm is a true issue, there is no denying it. I keep my mouth shut most of the time I did have one incident at work. One of the pct's was talking about how she doesn't like being called a black lady by the white girls on the floor! It put some things into perspective for me, and made a laugh a little,,, everyone sees things different from their own eyes. In 50 years we will all be such ethnic mutts there may not even be a race anymore. Who knows, we might have to concentrate on peoples character instead of skin color!!!!
