My work environment is a team effort of staff whom like and respect each other, I like coming to work. A typical day for me at present as charge nurse, Once I arrive, I get report from the previous charge nurse, go over staff assignments, and discuss any new developments including equipment malfunctions, new education for us to learn, Then I start triaging because we usually are short staffed so I am also triage nurse all night long as well as have my own patients. The ER doctors are pleasant to work with. Management has been a challenge, as our manager for the past 3 years just got terminated, and we currently don't have a manager until October 15. Acting fill-in is the manager of OB. The most enjoyable part of my job is my peers, no matter how hectic it can get we work well as a team. The hardest part of the job is when we are more than one nurse short staffed. At times, that can be unsafe staffing and at this time, we have only the house supervisor to assist us. I do like my job and frequently work overtime, but would love to travel at this time in my career.
