    Egocentric Managers

    You are right, I should not let her behavior affect me. I usually just say OK to her demands and do my job because I know nothing I can do will change her behavior. IDK maybe if I file a complaint anonymously against her she might be able to reflect on her behavior as a manager... I was civil with her today and I didn’t give any hint about what I heard because I know it won’t do any good for me and my coworker. Thanks for the advice!

    Egocentric Managers

    Hi guys! I just really want to vent out my frustration and also get some advice from anyone who has dealt with egocentric and mean managers. So I work in an outpatient dialysis in SoCal and just accepted a job offer at a different modality within the same company. I gave my manager a two week notice and told her that I would still like to keep my current role but as Per Diem. I had told her before that I plan to be an NP in this field and that this new opportunity would be great for my professional growth. She told me that she supports my decision but she “won’t allow” me to transfer in 2 weeks and I should’ve told her as soon as I applied there. She said I need to give her at least 30 days because it’s hard to find coverage especially during this pandemic. I told her that I thought two weeks was standard. She then went ahead and told me what I did was “unethical” and explained how the company works as a family and I should have communicated my intentions to transfer because it’s a company policy (which I never heard of even my coworkers). She then contacted one of the hiring managers to request that I stay at my current job for another month. I didn’t want to have a bad relationship with her and the company, so I unwillingly agreed. A week later, my coworker, who referred me to one of the hiring managers at the other job, was confronted by our manager yesterday. Per my coworker, our manager was so angry and gave a lot of negative reviews about my performance. I never mentioned her name to my manager at all because we had an agreement, but the manager lied to her saying that I told her she helped me get the job (If anyone is wondering, my coworker works per diem at the other job). Our manager was basically trying to corner her into telling the truth, but my coworker didn’t give in to her trap. I felt really upset after I heard this because I know what kind of worker I am. I work hard and efficiently but I am not perfect. I have only been working at my current job for 9 months and sometimes I forget little things. When I used to work in a hospital as a new grad I was even awarded for being an excellent teammate within my unit, but ever since I moved and started this job all I hear from my manager is the little things I forget to do (mostly monthly documentations for 20+ patients which are so repetitive and unnecessary IMO). She keeps telling me it’s compliance issue and may be subject to termination. I really wasn’t used to taking care of 20+ patient in a day and I had a lot of adjusting at work. I am looking forward to start my new job in Acute dialysis because it will be in a hospital setting and 1:1 ratio. Also, I won’t have to deal with a toxic manager, but I am afraid she will call the managers in Acutes and tell them all the negative things she has about me. I heard from my coworker that many have been applying and got an interview, but I was the only one who got hired so far. If anyone is currently experiencing and have experienced the same situation please feel free to share your experience or thoughts!

    Thank you so much for everyone's word of advice! I definitely learned from my mistake and will be very careful next time.

    Nurse-client Relationship Boundaries

    Thank you for taking the time to reply and I really appreciate your advice. You are correct when you said that I did it to be nice, but looking back, I should have said no about giving her my school email even if she was a very nice person. I will definitely use your advice next time I encounter something like this in the future.

    Nurse-client Relationship Boundaries

    Thank you! I understand and accept my mistake now. I was rushing and ready leave the unit, and I clearly was not thinking properly when I did what I did
  6. I am a nursing student and had an elderly female patient during clinical who I really connected with. She was my only patient for the day, so I got to know her pretty well. She had to go through a procedure and told me that she was very nervous about it. I spent most of the day caring for her and I went with her to do the procedure. At the end of my shift, she thanked me for caring for her, and told me that she could not have done the procedure without me. This patient asked for my email because she wants to hear what happens to my career and see how i am doing. I thought it was sweet of her, but I would never give out my personal email, so I gave her my school email. Did I still cross professional boundaries?

    ODU Accelerated BSN Hopefuls Fall 2016

    OMG! I'm excited. I will be looking out for the mail tomorrow! I applied for the traditional route. I currently attend TCC and will be completing my associate of science degree this May. I had a 3.84 GPA and a score of 84.5% on Hesi when I applied. I am kinda nervous because my Hesi score is lower than those who are considered competitive applicants, who have typically scored around an 86%. I only studied for a day before I took the test, hence my low score ... I currently volunteer at Sentara. I hope my volunteer experience would help me get in! Good luck to everyone, I hope we all get in!
