I'm not sure if i'm still allowed to to say that i am a new nurse, after all i passed my RN exam last december, got my first job as a charge nurse in a facility last feb. and about a month ago, i started a job as a nurse supervisor in a facility.
but... i can say that i'm still getting the hang of working as a nurse, as a real nurse with a license.... i'm still learning, but for some reason, i guess some nurses, does not accept the fact that i'm still learning, it felt that as a nurse, especially as an RN i should know everything =(, which to tell you honestly, I DON'T, what i learn in school for 4 years is different from what it is in the "FLOOR", and i am frustrated, how am i going to learn something if no one is willing to teach me.
the reason why i'm saying this is because i have a co-worker in the facility that i work at now as a nurse supervisor that feels like she's always waiting for me to make a mistake (she's an LVN and been working there for 3 years). i'm not perfect and as i said i'm still learning, i'm not a sensitive person, when i make a mistake, and someone tells me, i take it, and i thank the person who pointed it out, because i learn from my mistakes.... but with her, when she hears that i made a mistake, instead of talking to me, she talks to other nurses, my mistake becomes some sort of a gossip around work, it's making me mad, so mad that it makes me think to just quit.
i know what my capabilities are, i don't have enough experience, but i am willing to learn. but it's just so surprising to me, that there are people like her, that seems like she has never gone through starting, as if she knows everything from the start.
