I am a new nurse I started 1/27/01. I have been working on a med/surg floor and enjoy it but find the paperwork ridiculous! I spend more time writing and rewriting the same information on 5 different forms I barely have time to assess my patients properly, let alone spend any time with them and, I long for a challenge. Although I have had some really interesting nights, most nights I feel like I am hanging the same meds on the same types of patients and although I have learned alot I long for some more excitement. Because I work 12 hr shifts I often will get "floated" to another floor for the 1st 4 hrs and recently I floated to the ER. I really enjoyed it, although my feet really hurt even more than on the floor! I have the opportunity to possibly transfer to the ER, where I will get 9 weeks of training and ACLS certified (at no charge to me) What do you think?
