I've been a nurse for about 3 years and have worked at my current position for about six months as a float pool nurse. Most of the charge nurses I work with are fantastic and supportive, however, there are a few that I feel micromanage.
How can I make it clear that I'm perfectly capable of doing my job and gain some trust? I've had some issues with charge nurses micromanagement in the past, and it makes me feel so incompetent and disrespected as a nurse. It's one thing to ask "Ok it appears patient is c/o "x", what do you need? How can I help?" vs "Ok what I need you to do is x, y, z." when I don't need that direction and know exactly how to handle the situation. I like to think my co-workers can trust my judgment as I trust theirs. If I have questions or need a second opinion, I'll always ask.
This is a floor that I float on pretty regularly so they know me pretty well. Perhaps the charge nurses are just trying to do their job and I'm taking it personally when it isn't? Would really appreciate some feedback on this. Thanks for reading. ðŸ˜Š
