Every unit is different, a good charge nurse can make or break a unit. The assignments are not always even, they should split up patients by acuity, spread out the difficult patients.
Also make difficult patients sign a contract that they will not be hostile or rude to staff and will comply with physician orders. Make sure each unit manager is trained to enforce and to train staff.
Fast paced. Good immediate management. Great staff, patients and opportunities.

Easy going as far as with other departments. My staff is hit or miss. Some are very easy going and some are very hostile depending on how stressed they feel.
