miss thang becomes a nurse
I've been in the ER a long time, as we all know. I've seen a lot of stuff. At this point your arm would have to be hangin' by a thread to get me excited. I don't know everything. I know that for a fact. There are things I've never done, things I forgot how to do. When that happens I ask my co-workers. It doesn't bother me a bit that I have to ask somebody else. There is always somebody who knows more than I do.
When you think you know everything you go barreling into situations and might screw it up because you don't want to ask for help. Thats when you end up in trouble. These kind of nurses can make the new nurses feel very small because they often times are critical. They talk about new nurses in a derogatory way.
I think people with these kind of attitudes are really just insecure. They have doubt about their abilities, but are so afraid they will be exposed, they cover it up with an air of superiority.
Get over yourself. Lack of humility will eventually bite you in the butt.
