Registered Nurse, Intensive Care Unit (Current Employee), Webster, TX – April 18, 2014
A typical day at work is fast paced as I meet the needs of critically ill patients. I have relearned, and improved upon, previous nursing skills. I have also learned better time management skills. The managers are great leaders and are willing to help out when needed. My co-workers are efficient workers and willing to help others when needed. The hardest – more... part of my job is at the end of the day when a patient has passed. I am typically able to help the patient and the family through difficult situations, such as death, but I find the hardest part to be helping myself to work through the events of the day. The most enjoyable part of my job is when I can realize that I have somehow helped a patient and/or their family to better understand the disease process. – less
Meeting the demands of staff and patients. I learn somthing new everyday. I work well under pressure. I get along with staff and charge nurses. Having a patient die. Working and helping patients with daily activities and helping them to get better. Keeping there spirits up.
Cons: good pay-not superior pay, not a cutting edge environment for research
I enjoy the fact that there is not typical day at my work. The unit I manage is different every day, with unique patients and clinical challenges. The people I work with are like minded and all strive for excellence. My managers are caring and fair. The hardest part of the job is that we are asked to do more and more with less and less. The most enjoyable – more... part of the job is the teamwork we have. Without it, we would not be able to accomplish what we do. – less
Very good place to work. Caring friends, understanding managers, great team effort.
