As a unit secretary, your day typically begins with ordering supplies for the unit supply room and the nourishment rack. You must be able to pick concepts up quickly to not have a stressful day at work. A positive attitude is a must. On all units, there will be high intensity situations. It is best to always remain calm and positive. Management will usually be very helpful, unless it is something out of their control. Co-workers are usually very nice, no one is outright mean (if they are, ignore them for as much as you can), but if you have a problem, please go to management. The hardest part of the job is probably being positive and optimistic. It does get stressful, from time to time, but you are there to do a job and to assist everyone on staff, so that the patients can get better. The most enjoyable part of the job is seeing people get better. It is rewarding in the end, if you can keep your head up.
