This facility has all the good and bad parts of a small facility. It is as I thought it would be. Lasting friendships. Though growth is limited by their size. Making movement very limited, and sometimes frustrating. They make up for this with great team work, because of a family atmosphere.
I presently am in case management. I have to have many people working together to ensure patient satisfaction in proper placement post hospitalization. Then,ensuring the hospital gets paid. I have been in this role of nursing for a year.
But, I am primarily looking for a staffing position on a tele floor, or to come back to surgery. This is what I have been doing most of my nursing career.
Most enjoyable part of nursing is how you come to love the patients and their family's and then they go. The hardest part, well, the long fast paced frantic hours you sometimes are hit with. That always amazes me that all comes together so smoothly because of great team work.
What have I learned; that after 20 years of nursing , I still love it.
