Yes yes another popcorn thread.
I don't have much actual experience in healthcare, and I am still working towards an RN, but I work as a CNA.
It hasn't been long, but so far I haven't experienced the eat your young thing.
I do see why people could get that impression though.
What I have seen is people trying to warn students/new grads it's a ver serious proffesional. So if you don't take it seriously get out.
This can be a fine line. You don't want to scare people, but for Everybodies sake you don't want to trivialize it.
I have seen a lot of the, what could be perceived as fear tactics, I used to hate that.
Having worked only a short time as a CNA, it's not hard for me to see why so many people go that route.
Some people are quite bitter about their jobs sure, but I think a lot of people are just trying to say ya it's worth it, don't expect it to be easy though.
So don't waste your time if you are unsure about it.
I could always be wrong though.
Oh ya, and I have been berated before, and offered feedback.
I try to analyze if it's valuable, and pertinent. If it helps me improve that's what I want.
If it's you know not relevant in my mind I simply ignore it.
Which is of course what everybody does, regardless of proffesion.
Its called being human. Everybody does things their own way, and they always have reasons for them.
Sometimes they are good, and you clash anyways. Sometimes their bad, and you know it, yet feel the person lacked tact.
Me if you make a good point in my mind I take it to heart. I may just not tell you I listened right away.....
my Because everybody gets defensive.
Lack of tact is no reason to discard valuable data.
Irrelevant data is, for the sake of keeping your Ego intact.
In life unfortunately you need an ego to be effective, otherwise you will always be crippled by doubt, and get no where.
Let it get to large, and it colors your perception about reality. Which is just as dangerous.
So my advice to people for what it's worth, make up your own minds.
If some one is less than nice, but has a point you don't have to grovel. Maybe though think about the point awhile.
If someone is not so nice, and doesn't have a point. Well now you can learn how to deal with it. Trust me it will make your life better learning this.
Nobody never clashes in life. Focus on yourself, and what you can do better.
You will be a much happier person that way.
Its a fine line, but it's worth trying to walk it.
Because you have to look at yourself in the mirror.
Nobody else can do that for you.
