I am an RN in rural Manitoba and currently work at a 1.0 EFT and as much overtime as I want.

If you don't mind me asking what is the wage in Manitoba or rural in particular if it's different....

A friend explained it to me. You live where you work. Everyone in the area knows where you work. They know everything about you. If they don't like you there is no escape.

Humour only works to a certain point. Stalking, verbal harassment in the grocery store, etc is no laughing matter. Just a huge safety concern.

does it truly get that bad?

i currently live in a rural town (less then 5000) & one my close friends is RN in the ER. i asked her about this & she said she's surprised at how many strangers come into the ER.

if you're speaking from personal experience, may i ask what type of situations have occurred/what area of nursing this happens in?

also, is this complete fluff then?

honestly, one of the reasons i want to become a nurse is because it's supposed to be 'recession proof'.

I work rural our island has under 3500 people and have no issues. I also don't do anything that would make people talk. But i know a few of the teachers up here are party animals ;)

It is small town living. Everyone talks. There is about 100 versions of one story. I have never been harassed

Or feared formmy safety.

I like rural nursing. Takes a certain personality. I move every 2-3 yrs so that may be why too (i got itchy feet) lol

I don't think it is as much as being terrified but knowing themselves. Not everyone likes the feel of isolation, not everyone likes the feel of the nearest neighbor being a distance away, others it may be the travelling they have to do.

Who knows
