It is a busy place that you will never get bored. On average during a 12 hour shift we see about 12 patients. Not all bad, but they can be challenging and rewarding, and some patients can be non compliant and we have to call for back up. I enjoy the people I work with. I have to say we have some of the best supervisors I have had the pleasure to be – more... around. I have become a part of this great family. We look out for each other and help take care of each other. I am going to miss them dearly. I will have to say that the most enjoyable part of my job is knowing that I was able to do some good in a persons life, even if it was just bringing them a smile or holding the hand of a dying patient. It has been a very rewarding experience in more ways than one. – less
