Productive and highly patient, family and staff interative environment.
Pros: staff recognition in the form of incentives.
Cons: working for long hours without adequate break time
As a clinical nurse, my typical day is much interaction with patients, their families, and members of the medical, nursing and ancillary professions. Every day, there is opportunity for new learning. This environment is multicultural, therefore there is much to learn from and about various cultures. Despite the hecticity of the work environment, I do enjoy my job, especially the opportunity to interact with my patients and their family members. The hardest part of my job is when the environment becomes very busy, and it is sometimes impossible to meet the patients' needs in a timely matter. Working in a team environment, makes the work load seem lighter and less stressful.
