I have been an LPN for 4 years, but just got my RN license on 12/23/2010. More responsibilities on my part. I work with a RN who does not like his job, and is not a team player. This is very frustrating, because it is just myself and him, running our acute floor. I have found it much easier to talk with our ER doctor, in a way of asking advice, and it has worked out for me. He is the same ER doctor every weekend. so, this is a unique situation. I have told my DON about my co-worker. She is planning to change my schedule. I have felt overwhelmed at times. But, i always tell myself to calm down, maybe go get a drink of water. Communicate with your fellow nurses, even if they dont want to hear it. I am sure they can remember when they were a newbie. I hope this helps.
