Worked as a floor nurse, performed assessments, medication administration, start IVs, administer blood products, collected blood samples, administered TPN, experience with wound care, surgical incision care, bed side testing,peritoneal dialysis, initiate and discontinue PCA pumps, patient/family education, bedside procedures with Drs. Every day was different in respect to the type of patient surgery that was performed, or transfer from another unit, I assisted with preping for surgery, nurse manager for the unit, adjusting schedule needs, organizing admissions, providing assistance to co-workers. I worked along the side of Dr's and other departments throughout the hospital to meet the needs of the patient. I learned many new skills since starting this position. Management was very encouraging, co-workers were friendly and helpful. the hardest part of the job was seeing somone in pain. The most enjoyable was seeing someone very ill, go home and feeling like I made a difference.
