I don’t understand what everyone is writing about that schools aren’t now teaching clinical skills. I too came out of school as a fully functional RN, and started in the ICU. Several nurses on my unit DID try to “eat me.” I survived and now I am thankful that they were so hard on me. But to say that “nurses eating their young doesn’t happen” isn’t true at all.
