Registered Nurse, charge-nurse and Shift-Manager, Brenham, TX - February 27, 2017
I was at this facility as a new grad. Beside learning core nursing tasks, I regularly had to work with less than the minimum required. Nurses in leadership position could not even pass simple pills, but yet asked of merely difficult to complete tasks to nurses on the floor. The State has to review and implement new salaries to make sure that even if their nurses are not paid like those in the private sector, they can at least be happy with what they are making. A happy staff is key to the Nursing profession. Unfortunately, those making decisions not to compensate overtime for RN in state agencies, have never worked the floor.
