Hi Pam. I am an activity nurse facilitating activity programmes where i work. Throughout the year we would have students on work placements and i can honestly say that they are great at assisting me. I am disgusted at my nursing colleague's treatment to you. He/she seems to have forgotten about not only maintaining the dignity of residents but your dignity also. Any professional knows not to air grievences in front of residents. Don't let him/her upset you, you are doing a great job while on placement ensuring the quality of life of the residents is ehanced. Some professionals can feel put out if it isn't them not giving orders. Stand up for yourself but not in front of residents call the nurse aside and explain how you felt. No one should be reduced to tears when you know you are doing a good job.
