Pros: not having to work a full week
Cons: no time for 15 min breaks
I worked 12 hr shifts, I work 3 days a week when I was full time, then I went part time and work 1-2 days per week. Orthopedics/GI unit and loved every minute of it although some days were a bit stressful. My co-worker we wonderful people to work with, they were always there to help out.
The hardest part of the job was the pulling patients up in be – more... and turning patient in bed, we had a lot of total hip replacement and had to turn or move patient very carefully.
The most enjoyable part of the job was taking care of the patients and making them feel better. – less
