A good team is hard to find, and harder to leave as well.
Registered Nurse (Current Employee) – Englewood, NJ – February 26, 2018
My evening crew on the medical-surgical floor at Englewood Hospital is one of the best. At the drop of a hat, my teammates are at the ready in any emergency that may arise; and when all is (relatively) peaceful they are quick to help each other. A typical day is teeming with doctors changing orders and admitting and discharging patients. It's never a dull moment! The people with whom I work make nursing very enjoyable and add to my feeling of fulfillment. The hardest part is sometimes protecting the unit (nurse-patient ratios). While management does their best, anyone can understand that management is typically stuck between a rock and a hard place: they have three groups of people to serve and work with (the patients, the staff, and their superiors). Over time, I've learned many things including how to protect my patients and my coworkers, how to speak up and stand up for something I believe is worth protecting. And if I take to heart anything from here it's that a good team is hard to find, and harder, still, to leave.
