Busy, often stressful job with frequent rewards via patient feedback.
RN Staff Nurse (Current Employee) – Kings Mountain, NC – September 1, 2014
A typical day at work is busy, busy ,busy! Patient assessments, computer documentation, medication administration,patient education, frequent IV and urinary catheter insertion, and wound care, more documentation, hourly rounding, chart checks, frequent admissions, blood administration, and more computer documentation!!!! I learn something new every day. Ninety-nine percent of my co-workers are awesome. :-)
Management could be better, but that can usually be said of any job. The stress of making sure all computer documentation is completed by the end of the shift on each of my patients is the hardest part of my job. The most enjoyable part of my job is when I am working with my patients, talking with them, answering their questions, calming their fears, making them comfortable, seeing them improve and knowing that I made in difference in some small way.
