Patronizing Nurses–Perpetuation of the Problem
I attended a day long regional trauma conference today that was hosted by my institution and thought about this post during the first session.
I am not usually one who gets bent out of shape about politically correct stuff, but imagine my chagrin when the sticky preprinted name tags had physician and PA credentials prominently displayed, but not RN, NP, or EMT credentials.
Yeah, I commented on that one in the customary “course evaluation” handout.
Oh, and the next time a physician refers to the other NP and I as, ‘the girls’ I may strangle someone with my stethoscope.
