I work at a magnet facility, a large teaching hospital. I feel I have good relationships with medical staff, and enjoy getting to know residents on their various paths through training. Many nurses are either intimidated or have a “us vs them” attitude about physicians. If you learn to get to know each person as someone who is here to learn and provide great care, it makes life easier. We can learn from each other. Forming good relationships of trust (especially attendings who aren’t going anywhere), improves patient care: when I have something important I need to share, I am better able to make my thoughts known when I have a good working relationship with the physicians caring for the patient. I love the teaching hospital environment, and hope to spend my entire career being a part of it in some capacity.
