I'm sad that my view of CRMC is not good.
Pros: i have a job in nursing. i like nursing and i enjoy people. however, some people can be difficult to deal with.
Cons: i feel their is a lack of support, lack of encouragement and appreciation.
I was working evenings 1500 to 2330 on the medical/surgical unit. I would get anywhere from 5 to 8 patient's. I believe beening responsible for 8 patient's is to much.
I found out that a nurse is amazing person, the things that she must know, how to trouble shoot, critical think, save lives, deal with families, dealing with co-workers, dealing with the patient who is manipulative, evil, scared, drug seeker, the list goes on.
I like my manager, she listens. The co-worker were good people, they like to socialize more than work. That bothered me a lot. I have worked for the hospital since 1994, in different capacities. The nurses treated me as if I should know every thing, I had to remind them often that I'm a new nurse. I have been insulted many times, good thing I have tough skin.
The hardest part of the job as a new nurse was organization and completing all the task that were required from me and still be committed to the patient's feeling.
The most enjoyable part of the job is the patient, many have great stories. I also enjoy the body and how wonderfullly it is made. When I was in nursing school I was able to witness open heart surgery, Wow that was great!!!
I have been moved off the med/surg floor to telemetry. I started on this floor on 11/04/13. I was placed on nights, 3 tweleve hours shifts. The hospital know I was moving to Kentucky. I believed I was veiwed as an inconveniency and not an assets, I decided to cut my losses and move on.
