Wow Tcf2002. I'm really sorry for what happened to you. Our nurse colleagues/peers sure can be nasty and underhanded to say the least!
I'm currently in my 8th week on a med/surg floor and 3 weeks ago asked for a new preceptor as the original nurse assigned to me is a control freak and going through lots of personal problems. I like the woman, nice for a lunch or shopping, but preceptorship w/her was so chaotic! When we weren't running with what seemed like no method to the maddness, she was on her freakin cell phone dealing with her problems.... it was nuts and I was trying to learn the new "epic" "e-charting" charting to boot! Well now because I complained, boy am I under some kind of smoking gun!
I"m not sure what the outcome is going to be, but this new preceptor and the nurse manager I feel aren't liking that I asked for the change and are holding me to a microscope/fire under my feet. I've been a nurse for 20 years and though I've never worked any permanent med/surg. My skill set is good. I'm slower of course just for the fact of becoming acclimated to the unit, Md.s who all happen to have a differing first language than good ole english and then of course theres the e'charting that is coming along real well.
The nurse manager is new and of the 8 nurses who were hired, I'm the only one that the the managers boss hired. She doesn't like her boss so we can add that little piece of bullshit into pot..
Now if matters aren't stressful enough for me there lately, I chose to call the BON on another nurse who's been there a few years b/c she's flying high on narcs and xanax by her own admission, showed me her pill box and told me how much xanax she takes which is enough to put most of us in a coma in a 24 hr. period along with oxy's, percocet and vicodin also a part of her daily menu. I was torn on this, but in clear conscience knowing what I know can be the end of the story for a nurse doing that I had to make the call..
More than a few decks stacked against me here. I'm hanging tough though and going to stick this out while actively seeking other employment.. This life just doesnt run smoothing for all of us does it? lol.. I'm not dead yet, and I refuse to drink or drug over these stressors, but boy can this crap cause one to fantasize.. lol
Thanks for reading me, and any words of encouragement would be most appreciated!
Happy New Year Ya'all! Flying low here..I'll be at work.. ugh!
