I didn't realize that the prerequisite of a nurse is to be a perfect being. Do you honestly think that just because I'm a nurse, I'm expected to be nice to everyone. We are humans not saints. Yes, my calling is to be compassionate to my patients, but that is it. It does not mean I have to be nice to everyone. And speaking of hypocrites, as a nurse, is our job not to advocate for health, then does this mean that we should be in perfect health lest we be hypocrites? This is another common overused generalization next to NETY, "you're a nurse, aren't you supposed to be nice all the time". Nope, nope, nope. Believe me, I am strictly against bullying, but to make such wide generalization is wrong. Once again bullying exists everywhere, to claim and generalize that all experienced nurses do it is wrong, bullying is wrong, expecting a nurse to be nice 24/7 is also wrong for we are only human.
Also not everyone jumps to the conclusion that no bullying is present. We go off with what we get from the OP. In fact there are indeed other threads on which posters have called out bullies before. One in particular that I remember is when a nurse kept referring another nurse, who happens to be male, as girl. Multiple posters have told him to report that behavior.
