The patient turnover is very high, leaving little time for valuable "true" nursing. There is not much time for anything more than admitting, discharging, and trying to pass meds on time. Most co-workers are great. Management is MIA on nights and weekends; this is probably a "plus". Nurse/doctor relationship is non-existent with most of the MDs. This a stressful job, where the cons outweigh the pros.
