A typical busy day on average. Whether it was working in Critical Care or Cardiovascular ICU there was also something to do. Learned to how care for the ill in depth, new medical conditions, treatments, and prognosis. On average co-workers were team members. Everything that occurred in the unit was handled as a team to care for our patients. The job was a little stressful being that it was a 12.5 hour shift inside a building. Most enjoyable part of the job was the progression health status of the patient and being able to help patient family and visitors. Also, SAVING LIVES and improving healthcare.
