My least favourite time of year

It's soon approaching.. the sun is high in the sky, the birds are chirping their summer song... and the newly fresh minted residents start their training.

Urrgh and I work July 1st! 

A not-so-happy Canada day to me!

Junior nurse... very interesting

So nursing bullying is in full swing.

A colleague who graduated one year before me told me that I, a 'junior staff member', couldn't dare correct or contradict them.  The colleague was making a sarcastic, inappropriate remark at a critical time in patient care.

I told them I dont apologize for advocating for patients, and 1 year more experience does not a "senior" nurse make.
