This is a recent article from American Nurse Today. I found it to be informative. Being a novice nurse, I haven't had much conflict with physicians. I'm sure this will change as time goes by.
The most interesting statement was, "Nurses who are hard on themselves tend to allow others to be hard on them, too." I think this is so true. We start early in our profession at being hard on ourselves. The drive for perfection is often instilled in us, by us, as early as our college education, with the stress and strain, sometimes just to meet the minimal to pass. And the psychological suffering we put ourselves through is we don't meet our own lofty goals.
However, I would encourage myself and the rest of us to never allow a physician to treat us in a manner that we would not permit them to treat a pt.
I enjoyed the reading and would encourage you all to take a peek. I would also enjoy hear your stories of Nurse/Physician conflict and how you resolved it!!
