This job gave me an oppurtunity to get my feel wet In the feel and I appreciated the knowledge I recieved
Pros: The food they provided was good, and the health benefits and pension plan was also amazing.
Cons: Short staffed most of the time.
My typical day at work consisted of coming in at 11pm. we had 30 patients on the floor that needed two sets of vitals Q4. my shift also included cleaning and bathing the patients and making sure their needs were met. cross training was a huge advantage while I was there. I'm trained in crisis prevention, cpr certified, and my people skills have sky rocketed. Learning a lot from the nurses about medications, side affects, and benefit was another thing I enjoyed about the enviorment. The hardest part of the job had to be seeing the patients suffer after a transplant, dialysis etc. I mostly enjoyed the impact that I made on the patients stay. making them smile and seeing that I affected their lives in positive way.
