Mentorship and Nurses
Last week I sent an email to my boss explaining that I am interested in moving up the ladder. I received an email back that really just shot me down. I am seriously considering leaving because of the lack of support she’s given me.
Here’s one: Equality. Playing favorites is probably my biggest pet peeve. Level the playing field and hold all staff members accountable to the same standards regardless of experience, history or status.
At work last night, while I was demonstrating how to place a catheter for a less experienced nurse who couldn’t quite get it, I started thinking about how many of my skills I can attribute to my coworkers. I owe so much of who I am as a nurse to the amazing nurses that have surrounded me thus far and shared their wisdom.
