Pros: flexable scheduling, 12 hour shifts, and amazing healthcare
Cons: usual cons of working in a hospital, on your feet for extended periods of time, sometimes you couldn't get a lunch break, ect.
A typical day at work went: Report from off going nurse, check previous shift vitals and lab work, head-to-toe assessment, medication pass, I&O charting, check vital signs, Chart assessments, check charts, and fill out care plans. Frequent admissions sprinkled in as well as discharges. I learned that I enjoy working in a hospital setting, I also attended – more... classes on Evidence Based Practice and my project was accepted to go to a state-wide conference. My co-workers were an amazing bunch of people, I could always depend on them to assist me if I were in a bind, and I enjoyed helping them if they needed anything. The hardest part of any hospital job, of course, is the admission process. Though it was always very rewarding to see someone you admitted feel better and be able to go home! – less
