Great work environment, but not on the mother-baby unit!
RN (Current Employee) – Newark, DE – September 27, 2015
I work in the maternal pediatrics pool as a RN, where we are assigned to work on the pediatric unit, NICU, or mother-baby unit. All the units, except for the mother-baby unit is supportive and assigns safe nursing ratios. Everytime, I'm assigned that unit, I am bracing myself for an unreasonable nursing assignment, no time to eat lunch or go to the bathroom. The RN turn-over on that unit is very high. There is a reason for that. Staff nurse morale on that unit is low and most nurses in the pool do not like working on this unit.
no lunch breaks, mother-baby unit
