Pros: flexable schedule, friendly co-workers
Cons: unorganized, all paper charting, staffing, not alot of training
A tipical day at work envolves lots of paper work, double checking charts and orders made during the day. I've learned more about psychatic patients and medications as well as how to be over a unit when you are understaffed. My co-workers are great for the most part. I do hear them often complaining about each other but you find that every where. I have not had any bad encounters with any one however. The hardest part of my job would be trying to get all of my paper work done at night time and still make sure all of my patients are well take care of. To further explain I frequently stop what I'm doing to tend to my paitents as and nurse should and some days paper work gets put on the back burner. The most enjoyable part of my job would be getting to know my patients and helping them the best way I can.
