Pros: great co-workers and managment
Cons: rare to get lunch break for 12 hour day, acutity verses nurse patient ratio
A typical day at work begins with me arriving early at 630 to start my day. I take care if medical acute patient, icu transfer patients, hospice patients, cardiac patient, as well as surgical patients. I would take care of 6 patients till my day would end at 730pm but would more than likely work till 830 to finish paperwork.I have learned so much. There is a plethera of information that I have learned from a wide variety of diagnosis, blood transfusiond, dialysis, iv medications, trach care, ostomy care, foly care and wouns care. The hardest part of my job would be the busy pace of the floor. Many times I would not have time to eat lunch or get any break. I loved taking care of the patients. I love talking to people and giving great care. I also enjoyed taking care of critical patients and catching things early to help save lives.
