Engaging learning experience
Registered Nurse (Current Employee) – Dover, DE – March 31, 2017
I have really enjoyed my 2 and a half years working at Bayhealth as an RN. The most enjoyable part of my job is interacting with the patients. I have learned a ton on the job about caring for others, including difficult patients and situations. I have also been able to use many nursing skills and develop critical thinking skills in my daily activities.
My typical day includes giving medications, assessment of patients, advocating for my patient's wellbeing, admitting and discharging patients, inserting IV's, and much more. Collaboration with other healthcare workers is also a large part of my job, as well as making decisions regarding how I will structure my day!
However, my biggest struggle has been balancing the 12 hour shifts with everyday life. I would prefer working 4-5 days and being able to rest more each day after work, instead of getting home at 8:00 or 8:30 PM and then going back to work early the next morning again.
Great environment, Good team players
Busy floor, long shifts
