Working this particular travel assignment presented many things. A typical day at work was very busy. Most of the time each nurse had six patients. This often challenged your time management skills. What I learned in this setting was to think fast, chart fast, the importance of delegating, and the importance of team work, while still maintaining safe care. The most enjoyable part of the job was the staffs positive attitudes. From management to the aids the team work was phenomenal. The hardest part of the job was that you were not always able to spend as much time with the patients because of the lengthy charting expectations.
