NURSES EAT THEIR YOUNG. can anyone explain that to me?
I have seen this over and over. I have never understood it. Can anyone hellp me understand this?
This is an expression that implies that experienced nurses do not treat new nurses kindly.
that is the definition... but the why of it, concerns me. I guess i did not ask this very well. how can caregivers, by their nature, treat coworkers so unkindly.... thankyou for your answer, tajSingh. and maybe this is just an american thing... i don't know how nurses treat each other in other countries.
This may be maritime in nature, it has been said that the nurse shark protects her young by taking them into her mouth, just a thought.
Once I understood what it was you were actually saying, I decided to try my hand at answering this question. I am not a nurse. I have, however, been in a situation where the elders in my current station in life are fairly unkind to me. While I looked up to them for guidance and mentoring, they looked down on me as green, inexperienced, and just plain stupid. In some cases, I think the more jaded among them saw my idealism and wanted to squash it out of me before someone else had the chance to do so. It's almost like they thought, "No one was around to show me the ropes. Let her learn the hard way like I did." And, rather than letting the world teach me the hard lessons it had taught them, they felt compelled to teach me themselves through their behavior.
I'm a nurse and I must say I've never experienced this. In the UK and Ireland it specifically states in the code of conduct that senior nurses have the absolute duty to teach the more inexperienced. It's something we are used to.
All the college in the world cannot teach as well as the practical situation. It is recognised that if we want our junior colleagues to acquire the necessary skills for the profession then we have to teach those skills.
Reminds me of an old saying...'I love children...but I couldn't eat a whole one!'.
