Always something different,Vets are our only mission.
Pros: VA Nurses are giving back to those who have suffered, we have excellent benefits and working place.
Cons: Takes a long time to get things changed, lots of red tape, the Vets have to go through years getting their benefits and are very frustrated.
Report is shared from off-going personnel; medications are given, admissions and discharges are throughout the day, nursing assessments and progress notes are done on each Vet, the interdisciplinary team meets to form a treatment plan, rounds are made on all Vets, emergency situations are handled swiftly and competently. Reports are given to the on-coming shift.
I like all aspects of my job; it is never the same and certainly never dull. The Vets are always interesting and their experiences are unique.
