dream job as a nurse with children
Agency Nurse (Former Employee) – Burnsville, MN – September 2, 2015
Working for this agency allowed me to be a mom during the day for my children and work nights at the hospital and unit of my choice.
The pay was amazing! The experience was irreplaceable. I worked all over the hospital such as newborn nursery, ortho, med-surg, post-partum care, step down cardio, neuro, oncology... I was able to keep all of my skills active which was important to me.
The only negative was that sometimes I would be assigned to undesirable patients that none of the nurses employed at the hospital would want. One day I was assigned to 4 AIDS patients, each located on a different hallway. I was 5 months pregnant at the time. The other negative was that if I had to treat a life threatening condition before my shift was over, I would never find out how things turned out for the patient because I never returned to the same unit/hospital 2 nights in a row.
The accommodation of the agency to my wants and needs as a nurse, and schedule, and enabled me to keep all of my nursing skills active.
Being assigned undesirable patients that no other nurse wants, and the inability to follow up with the outcome of a patient's condition.
