RN Staff Nurse, Cleveland, OH - March 31, 2015
A typical day at work was very busy with admissions and discharges, assessing patients, medicating patients, teaching patients, and families, preparing patients for diagnostic procedures, or surgery. Also working as a team to get the job done. The team being other nurses, nursing assistants, doctors, other departments, or as a float nurse floating to other areas half way thru my shift. I learned how to prioritize, and be orgainized. Management was fair in treatment of all staff. The people in general were nice to work with.The hardest part of the job was not being able to spend enough time with patients and families due to the fast, busy, pace, of the hospital environment. The most enjoyable part of the job is the patients and seeing them get better in most cases.
