Trauma Columnist traumaRUs, MSN, APRN 153 Articles; 21,231 Posts Specializes in Nephrology, Cardiology, ER, ICU. Has 31 years experience. May 3, 2014 A CNS is at least, nowadays educated at the Masters level if not the doctorate. Doubt that she got "promoted" to this position but rather she "earned" it via higher education. If you have specific, care-related concerns then please address them to her specifically. Complaining because she referred to her "baby Daddy" while not something I would say at work, is not care related. Stating that she didnt order the correct dose of medication or do the paperwork correctly is a different story. To me, it sounds like you just plain dont like her and honestly thats not enough to confront her with. What is her role in relation to yours? I'll be brutally honest here because as a CNS if an has specific issues with the orders I give or the care I render, fine speak up. I do not discuss my personal life at work ever and have always stuck to that and it has always been a plus. I dont go to work to make friends, I go to work to care for patients. However, I dont do the direct care most of the time as a bedside RN would do. What are your specific complaints?
