I also have a surgical tech. degree and trust me, nursing school is conditioning for the stressful work environment. I have see worse behavior in the OR. I have seen doctors scream at nurses, instruments thrown and swearing you won't hear from a truck driver. Facilities are getting better, but they tip-toe around doctors because they need them more than a nurse or a surgical tech. I learned to turn off my emotions and let things fly off my back, because honestly I don't think it will change. I'm actually thinking about finding a clinical job for less stress.
