I am about 800 hours in to my first RN position as an emergency nurse. While I was working late last night and juggling 5 patients of moderate acuity including a ETOH withdraw, a ?perfed ERCP, a PE, a chemical splash to eyes, and a renal colic. Between assessing them and running orders I took a second and thought man, I love this
I work with an amazing team of nurses, both new and with 25+ years behind them. Every single nurse is a joy to work with. I am so grateful they take the time to teach me, and I feel like I contribute to the team.
Work is so infinitely better than school. The paychecks are nice too!
It's even nicer being juuuuust a little more familiar with the place than the new residents, so that I actually seemed knowledgeable when they asked for help
Do you love your job too?
Let's spread a little happiness today!
