I loved bedside nursing, but got burned put from being consistently understaffed. We would get loads of admissions even without regard to our current acuity and staffing levels. The unit Director was great, but the hospital was going through some changes in upper management. A temporary CNO had stepped in and the entire hospital seemed to change. She removed floating differential pay which made other nurses not want to float, but then made all floors open to pull when previously we were closed units with option to float with compensation. An L&D nurse pulled to telemetry or vise versa is not ideal.
Low salary increases even if they are yearly
