This what I most worry about when I hear about "customer satisfaction" and getting along with other nurses..
I don't want to sound like a complainer but there was a time when I was the only "young" nurse on the floor and the older nurses would gang up on me.
So of course,everyone thought I had "poor" soft skills when it was the other way around.
Yes,the pts liked me,but still,it didn't matter.
Soft skills depends on fitting in with the "crowd".
Nurses are people,and I have saw nurses who didn't fit in on the unit for simple reasons...weight,shyness,race, you name it.
I don't talk about my personal life at all at work,but it gets under some nurses' skin because there is nothing for them to gossip about me.
