View Full Version : Hi nurses!

Hey everyone. I'm new to this forum. Looking for a safe place to seek advice and wisdom. I'm a critical care RN at a large university teaching hospital. In my 10 th year. I love it, but it's super stressful, balancing the responsibilities, the politics of the environment, the frustrations, and having a difficult and demanding elderly mother. I got into an argument at work the other night with a PCT, and I cursed. Now I've been suspended for a week.. I can't tell you how embarrassed I am. I tend to curse without even realizing it, and I have a hard time with it when I'm frustrated. My NM says that we will just move on when I come back to work, but I'm so mortified that I don't even know if I can go back.. Should I just look for another job at another hospital, start over? Or should I stay and work through it? I've got a letter in my file now. I'm pretty depressed. Anyone ever been through something like this? :( Thanks for listening.
