Please don't.

Please don't try to push your work off on me. I am a social worker. Not your personal assistant.

Please especially do NOT try to push your work off on me when it involves going beyond my scope of practice and doing what YOU are licensed to provide .............nursing duties.

Again, I am a social worker.

I can do a lot of things, but when it involves handling medications, I know that's not on me!

I also do not work for your agency. So if you have questions about what your responsibilities are, ask YOUR nursing supervisor.

Lastly, please do not assume you know what my position entails. You know what they say about people who ASSume ;).

  1. Ah yes, my favorite. It's weird that people who do that hold social work in such high esteem that they think we can do everything, yet somehow they tend to talk down to us at the same time...
