I learned very quickly that I like what I do, however there is a lot of stress that comes with this job, no big news there! Learning and understanding what you are doing is something you better get very quickly! Just because one person does something and the handbook and signs posted all over say your not allowed to do it and you report it to the management team, it does not matter, unfair and unequal treatment go on all the time. When a patient calls the desk for help and you call the nurse or a tech to go and help it shouldn't take 15 - 30 mins to get some help for that patient. That is just wrong. So what I have learned about management is there isn't any. The hardest part about the job "Very Fast Paced" & "Not Enough Help!" There is a good side... there are "some" nurses that are there to help you in any way they can. This goes for the doctors as well. So if you are thinking of joining MWH team put on your armor and smile you will need both.
