Job Work/Life Balance
Fast paced but worthwhile.
Registered Nurse Emergency Department (Former Employee) – Flushing, NY – January 19, 2018
The job is very fast paced and somewhat stressful. You learn to triage patients effectively and efficiently. there is high-level of staff cooperation and trust in each other. The hardest parts of the job are trying to accommodate the large influx of patients that occur almost daily in the winter months and the fact that it's situated in the most culturally diverse area in the US often requiring the use of tele-interpretation to take patient hx and understand patient/family requests. The upper nursing management of the ED is wonderfully warm and understanding. The middle management can be spotty as most are new to the job and have little diverse ER experience. The best part of the job is knowing despite all the obstacles you did your best to aid the patients under your care.
