A day in nursing at my employment means that you must be versatile. My co-workers are trust worthy and dependable because we trust each other to play a part in saving the lives, and satisfying the customer. The hardest part of my job is remembering that nursing is a 24 hour job, I tend to want to complete all task myself, I need to learn to delegate more. What I enjoy about my job is that I learn something new everyday.
