    "I cope with people like that by feeling smugly superior. They have to be gratuitously rude? Eye-rolling? That's someone else's poorly-raised teenager, not yours" LOVE this :)

    Toxic Work Environment

    Thanks! That's what I try to do everyday- eye on the prize and all that. I've started to repeat to myself every day...like Jinx in RuPaul's drag race "water off a ducks back"

    Toxic Work Environment

    Hey Y'all, just feeling really defeated and looking for some encouragement I've been a RN for 8 years and last year I went back to school for a graduate degree The program is made for working adults, but it's still grad school- I'm also married with children I loved my job, manager and co-workers, but the pressure of ICU and trying to have good work life balance with my family and school got to be too much I transferred to a clinic within my company- regular hours, no weekends, holidays, or missing my children's school programs anymore, and a shorter commute- YAY! NOPE I work with four other nurses and with the exception of one of them, the atmosphere is toxic and cold Asking questions earns condescending caustic remarks, sometimes eye rolls I try to be personable with at least a "Good Morning, how are you?" And I'm lucky if I get an answer at all- if I do it's one word answers with no courtesy of "how are you?" returned It's not like I've never worked with jerks before- but it's obviously different when you're in patient- Usually you're too busy to care too much about your co workers, and its easy to avoid the jerks But in clinic, I'm at a desk most of the day within a few feet of the other nurses My manger is aware somewhat, but obviously I'm not gonna go tattle every time they're rude I'm trying to not take it personally as I've seen them all be rude to other people in the clinic, but honestly I just don't have the patience for this nonsense Any tips our tricks for dealing with a toxic work environment while you have to be in close proximity to the toxic co workers?

    Ignoring your education?

    Thank you. I'm not sure how this turned into a post about my personal motivations Some may doubt my motivation for this thread, but I was completely genuine and earnest in my original post: I am completely confused as to how a medical professional that has had numerous science courses can turn around and promote pseudoscience But, I'm one of those silly and naive people who believe that if people just see the evidence surely they will just change their minds

    a Are you suggesting I be straight up agressive and call out people by name?????

    Meant to quote this in my response

    Ignoring your education?

    Nope. I'm sorry, it may be bad etiquette, but I'd rather be seen as rude than condone dangerous behavior. When people on the holistic board use pseudoscience and promote oils etc that are not evidence based, I have no qualms about calling them out.

    Well there's this page with these gems ..... https://allnurses.com/holistic-nursing/should-i-try-652679-page6.html#post8692934

    Ignoring your education?

    Lately I've been troubled by the nurses I encounter here who seem to ignore their education- look at the holistic board, it's full of posts ignoring evidence-based practice, or a stunning ignorance of how to find a reputable study. Many of these nurses have BSN or higher, so are they just straight up ignoring all their education?

    mandatory flu shot

    Goodness. A bit early in the conversation for ad hominem attacks.

    mandatory flu shot

    Well it's an unethical for you to share this information in this manner- it being legal does not make it ethical

    mandatory flu shot

    Sorry but I find this suggestion an irresponsible, offensive misuse of this law. The ONLY sect that refuse vax is Christian Science. Anyone else claiming this is lying. Full stop. I'm speaking here as a devout Catholic and spouse of a guy completing his Phd in theology. But this highlights perfectly why the laws need to be overturned or at least reformed. The conditions should be much stricter; one should need to show a signature from a clergy member that they are a current member of the congregation to get this exemption
