I have been an RN for 26 years. Before that, I was a CMA for many years. I found the story sad since nursing is a profession that is ever changing and no matter how many years you are a nurse you can always learn something new. The expression they used in the 80’s was experienced nurses “eating their young.” I personally believe in teamwork and working together for the good of the client. New nurses need mentors that assist them in the process of building their confidence. All nurses need to work together and utilize each others special talents.
