excellent job without risk of getting called off due to low census
Registered Nurse (Current Employee) – Fort – March 13, 2018
Typical day at work for each nurse is very busy taking care of up to 6 patients and managed, supervised, and assisted nursing staff as Charge Nurse. We worked well together in our own unit; helped each other out to get work done. The hardest part of the job is the poor relationship between labor and delivery, antepartum, and postpartum nurses. This only became an issue when the units (labor and delivery, antepartum, and postpartum) separated. Before then we all worked well together in LDRP. Another hard part of the job is having to complete multiple training requirements on a monthly basis and expected to do this while on duty. It is not conducive to learning. However, despite all these, I still highly recommend working for SAMMC (or BAMC). Each facility has its own issues and I still rate working for Department of Defense as the best experience I have had as a nurse, both as an active duty and as a civilian. I am only searching for a new job to get out of in-patient care, work regular hours, and be off weekends and holidays.
