I guess I misrepresented her role. When our floor RN stopped working, they fell below their mandate for an RN 8hrs per every day rule. All of the jobs you guys are mentioning are done by other staff members ( DON, ADON, MDS team, unit supervisors). All I know is when the only RN staff nurse quit, they couldn't find an RN to work the floor but needed to have one in the building. Thus they created the " RN supervisor" position. I guess I am not really sure what kind of response I was looking for. It is frustrating to feel like the staff has such little support, the supervisors dont even give a damn. Its depressing to want to do a good job and everyone acts like they just punch a clock. Maybe its because I am new, maybe in a few years I wont give a damn either.
