As per this.(Original post by zippyRN)
Realise that Nurses are potentially your best friends and your worst enemies - there are nurses who might 'only' be a band 5 but they know more aobut the speciality and the patients than you will ever have chance to learn unless you come back to thatspecialisty as Specialist trainee in a few years time.
The nursing hierarchy can be very skewed compared to doctors. You can hav very young and hopeless ward sisters, promoted because of talented brown nosing rather than skill, and extremely talented and intelligent band 5s who could easily run the whole place if they cared to.
Never disregard an opinion based on the level of the person giving it to you.
But we haven't even met!
