Pros: enjoy the residents and their stories
Cons: no breaks
My position can be very challenging most of the time, due to being short staff most of the time. The most enjoyable part is the appreciation that the residents show. Just knowing that I make them feel a little better is very fulfilling. I work with some amazing people, the CNA's that I do have work very hard to do a good job and I appreciate them for that. 3rd shift entails a lot of the administrative paperwork, such as re-writes, MARS, TARS, 30 minutes checks, verify MD orders, check charts, treatments, schedule lab work and much more.
