Pros: codes of conduct, icare standards, leadership academy
Cons: long shifts and hard to get days off
I love going to work every morning. Each day I welcome my hectic schedule because I know the work I do results in positive outcomes for patients. My typical day starts with staffing assignments and daily statistics. My strength is time management. To ensure each operating room surgery starts on time, I lead my staff with clear communication, instruction, schedules, deadlines and assistance. My co-workers are highly trained, skilled nurses who I admire. The hardest part of my job is when the hospital has high census and not enough staff. The most enjoyable part of my job is the pride I feel knowing I took care of my staff and each patient to the best of my ability.
