Sometimes at work I feel like no one hears what I’m saying. I feel like I am walking around like in that old commercial with a phone up to my ear screaming “Can you hear me now???”.
Yes I just transferred to day shift from night shift. No I’m not new. No I’m not an idiot.
I guess some of the nurses I work with see a new face and automatically think newbie and assume I am stupid and can run all over me. Sometimes I just want to scream! This is not my first rodeo. I am very good at what I do and I just wish people would listen when I talk and not think I’m an idiot just because they haven’t seen me before.
I love my job, I really do. But sometimes its just frustrating being new to day shift. I have worked nights for 3 years and am able to work all over the hospital in any ICU (adult or neonatal), the ER, the floor, wherever. Only 1 other therapist can do that. I’m not trying to brag but I’m just saying that I’m good at my job and I really wish these day shift nurses would get over it.
Sorry for the soapbox but I’m a little frustrated today. Boo.
