Working in the Woman's Center was the most fun part.
Nurse tech II (Former Employee) – Denton, TX – January 3, 2016
You got your assignment of how many patients, acuity levels, if B/S or not & your Nurses assigned to each patient. When you had over 12 patients with high acuity, then you worked with your co-workers to help. You learn a lot about your patients, their families' & your nurses on a daily basis. I got a lot of enjoyment working with & talking with my patients & their families. Management in my early years mentored me & that encouraged me. Management in my last 4 years was not the same, they treated PCT's not the same way.
The hardest part is when we were short handed. We understand it takes time to employ more people, but it can also burn out your current staff when you have over 14 patients daily for a long period of time. The most enjoyable change was working in the Woman's center with the Mom's & their new babies. I also enjoyed the ER & all that you could learn there.
Over the years with certain reward programs they gave a free lunch
short breaks, patient overload due to shortness of staff
