Nursing is a hard enough job, but the support that exists on my unit and hospital-wide is overwhelming. I love the fact that one can freely discuss a patient's plan of care.
The hardest part of the job is having to take in 7 patients whenever a nurse calls in sick at the last minute. However, the charge nurse would grab her own set of patients and the house supervisor would pull out someone from the float pool to alleviate the strain.
Love working here. :)
Understaffed at times.
