The whole nurses eat their young debate. A neccesary perception, or reality?

  1. 0 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.

    Hey cool.

    I am glad for your feedback, but I think I addressed it with this point below.

    Nurses eating their young is a common thread on here.

    Which is why I posted this.

    Of course it's meant as a comment about the ways things work, or at least how I perceive them.

    If people read the body, it's not actually a critiscism of the community.

    Rather it's an attempt to get people to think about things differently.

    If some one doesn't like it that's fine, but you know.

    Reading it might be a good Idea.

    I know it's a popcorn thread, and people are likely to jump all over it before reading.

    Because they are sick of those threads, and I hear them say so.

    I read it already. It still doesn't make any sense and your subsequent replies are making less and less sense. Maybe you should give it up.

    I do not even know where to start and how to approach it all, but to begin with, it would do real good for the OP to work hard on his (or her) writing style. Otherwise, I feel a deep pity for your nursing school professors.

    Hey once again thanks for the feedback.

    I don't typically write apa papers on social media sites.

    Especially not on an IPhone.

    Thanks proffesor!

    Maybe, I will.

    You know you could ask questions about it.

    Like I said I covered this type of feedback already.

    If it doesn't make sense.

    Thats your problem not mine

    All nastiness in reply.

    Hopefully that's just the nurse tron at work.
