Change of Shift is Up!
Don't miss the newest edition of Change of Shift. There are plenty of nurses in the blogosphere! See what they are all talking about.
what your talking about is not only rude behavior from nurses (ie rn's) but horizontal violence. You can not any longer alow rn's to treat you badly. it is unacceptable. it is your responsibilty to report these events when they happen. your institution is require to have in place a zero tolerance policy regarding disruptive behaviors. i see you have listed the nurses name and place of employement an example of horizontal violence as well, you are upset with her and are retailating in print. feel better? probably not i bet. all nurses rn/lpn pca's must stop treating each other badly. the work and responsibilities are too important and the person who suffers is the patient. behave as educated adults not oppressed groups.

I am an experienced LPN for the past 28 years. Why not use more LPNs under the supervision of RNs. I cannot find jobs in any local hospitals in MI. I have worked in critical care, and out-pt. oncology/hematology. My nursing skills are as good as, or even better than new RN BSN grads. Nurses are demeaning, rude, and concentrate on titles more than pt. care. Everywhere I have worked I have to prove myself to fellow nurses. Its not the pts. that are demanding or judgmental, its fellow nurses. Donna Lamb RN supervisor at Cancer Care Associates even made a pts. health care be delayed just to demean me as a LPN. How low can it get?
