Nice, durable and comfortable place to work if you enjoy dealing with patients, patients' relatives and Coworkers. A typical day at work is getting report from the Unit Secretary that is about to leave for the day, checking on the patients to be sure they are alright; doing the boards, filing, data entry, preparing MD Rounds, etc. The hardest part of my job is dealing with the pettiness from my Coworkers who like to keep up confusion between the staff. There is poor Management due to the fact that the Managers and Supervisors have tendency of covering up for each other when mistakes are made by the Nurses and each other. A good enjoyable part of the day/my job is when we have no Emergency Discharges, Rapid Responses, Code Blue or Deaths. This means that the patients are well taken care of and they are resting comfortable and pain free. Keeping my patients at ease and smiling is a good thing for me.
You get to do overtime when you need it.
