Working as a weekender in the Operating Room, the work-life balance is excellent
RN Charge Nurse (Current Employee) – Dallas, TX – February 22, 2017
Working weekend nights at a level 1 trauma center, there is truly not a "typical" work day. The "feast or famine" rule definitely applies. There is always work to do, of course, but the stress level can be intense in the event of severe trauma.
Although there have been some management issues in the past, the current department management are very involved in day to day operations and employee morale has improved immensely. This is a very busy facility but the workload is distributed equitably. The staff are friendly and cooperative and new employees are quickly accepted as team members.
Multiple specialties, continuing education opportunities, supportive management staff
At times, very busy, with long intense cases.
