Nurse Extern Full-Time (Former Employee), Washington, DC – June 27, 2015
This was a wonderful experience in that I got to do something that I was passionate about. You could tell the nurses that were burned out, and the ones who really enjoyed what they did.
I didn't like – more... that a few doctors believed that they didn't have to take orders from anybody while a patient was on the operating table. I also didn't like the bickering and jostling to receive the highest accolades or just to be seen.
