The team work you speak of is too often not apparent. Too many unskilled agency nurses and inept regular staff who are sadly lacking in skills and motivation.

From what I read here and have been told by those still in the trenches, conditions have worsened significantly since I left my position with Alive. The work is emotionally stressful enough, but the fear based management style and disharmony that it fosters make the job all the more dissatisfying. Sad for the patients, but if you're a good nurse, look elsewhere.

The job IS emotionally hard, and working conditions at Alive make it even harder. I've never worked anyplace where staff was so stressed and unhappy.
