What should I do?

Rating:
(votes: 0)


I am 25 y.o. nurse with almost 2 years of experience as of April 27th ( but who is counting)...lol...But anyways I work on a Neuro unit. I feel like I do not get any support from my management team. They talk to me like I am a child. Like I told them I am young and only have 2 years of experience but I am still an adult. My question is should I move on with my career and leave or just try to fix our relationship? What should I do?
Go with your guts/heart. Do you feel any loyalty towards them? Do you like the job, in general? Do you go in excited or full of dread?

Stay there and stick it out! Who cares that they talk to you like a child... thats great! That means they like you. You may even be able to learn a thing or two from them.I would be walking around with a smile on my face. Your getting a paycheck right? Your 25 with a long career in front of you suck it up and drive on. You will be a stronger person in the end!

If your not comfortable there than I would start looking for something else..

I disagree. True professionals treat each other with dignity. You were right to tell them that you are an adult. It depends on the person. They may do that not realizing that it is insulting. Just try to discern their intentions. Do they do it maliciously? Have you contributed to the situation at all? At the end of the day, you are right, just because you are the new kid on the block (no pun intended) you too deserve to be treated with respect. Continue to be assertive, with EVERYONE. Treat others with respect and demand the same.If you dread going to work, find something different. Hope this helps you make a decision!

I like neuro in general...but I don't feel comfortable at all when going to work!!! I don't sleep well at night because I know I have to go into work...I feel like everybody is an equal....nobody should be talked to like a child...I dred going to work!!! But my heart is telling me I should leave start all over again!!!

Comment:
Just my opinion.... a lot of newer nurses are treated this way. If this is still your first nursing job - you may always be treated like a new grad. It shouldn't be that way, but it is sometimes. Just remember, there are neuro units everywhere if you decide to move on.

A few things to remember.Management generally turns over frequently, you might be able to wait them out.Don't let them bother you if you're on a unit you love.If you do decide to leave, keep your reasons on the positive, tell future prospective employers that your looking for opportunities and growth that you don't feel are available where you're at now. Don't go to your next interview with tales of how bad the management is at your current facility. Don't put in notice till you have a new job lined up, give a long notice, smile on your way out.

Thank you guys for your advice!!! I had an interview and I pretty much got the job!! But she asked me for my mamager's number...I am really nervous now!! ..I have been smiling and taking her "feedback" as she likes to call it and not saying a word!!!

One of the best ways to counteract someone who is treating you like a child is to be assertive. However, you must walk a fine line when addressing your manager. Why do you think she talks to you like a child? Does she do this to everyone else? Have you discussed this with her? What kind of feedback is she giving you? Is it factual?

Comment:
If you interview and find something else you would like to try at another facility or on another floor in yours I'd go. A baby chick needs to fly away from the nest once an adult...

Comment:
The floor is very divided...she does not talk like that to other nurses on the floor...she shows favoritism on the floor...its only certain people that she talks to like that...we had several meetings with HR...there is still no improvements on the floor...I can't really explain how she talks to me like a child but she does...for some odd reason I truly believe it is because of my age and experience as a nurse
