Hmmm...I hate to generalize, but there is definitely one thing to keep in mind with what we do - it is female dominated. So with that being said there are definitely situations where there's "too many women in the kitchen." One of my fears when going into nursing school was knowing how being with a lot of ladies can be sometimes...especially since I am the kind of girl who always got along better with boys anyway. On the flip side, I have worked with some WONDERFUL women and BEAUTIFUL humans that I look up to.
I will say this though...I have NEVER not wanted to do my job because I was with a bunch of cliquey/miserable nurses. There are many units like that but there are many units where they get along REALLY well. There are even cases where maybe day shift is cliquey and don't work together but night shift is cohesive. It just kind of depends on the personalities in that department. Should you ever let that get in the way of YOUR income, YOUR future, and YOUR career?? HECK NO! There are many options that do not include being at the bedside in a department you loathe. So if your career aspirations lead you to want more, then go get it. Certainly don't let a bunch of sour grapes spoil your wine!
