Everyone worked well together as a team, and were friends at work and after work.
Pros: good management, good team work, treated with respect by the doctors.
Cons: short breaks. emotinally challenging job, but support was offered to any staff that requested it.
Assess your patients, and meds passed. Checked labs to see if able to receive chemo. Gave Chemo, blood products, and would work on the Bone Marrow Transplant floor at times when needed. I learned a lot of my nursing skills in this job, due to the extreme needs the patients and their families had to deal with. Management was very supportive of staff, – more... and I actually was able to advance to nurse educator, assistant nurse manager, and prn nursing supervisor on nights for medical floors. Co- Workers were always able to help, whenever help was needed, and management would work on the floor if they needed to do so. The hardest part of the job was having patients with your floor for months, and sometimes, things would go wrong(infections, rejections, etc.), and they would pass. The most enjoyable part of my job was being a part of the medical team, and the doctor's valuing a nurse's opinion. Also having management helping you and trying to help you advance if that was something that you wanted. I also made friends there, that I will have for life. – less
