I have been at this travel assignment for about two weeks now, and I must say I'm ok with it. Most everyone is happy I'm here, except for the slackers that is...:chuckle. I recently got them to add another CNA on nites, and the other nite nurse isn't too happy, that it took me coming, and saying something to get more help. But I can't really blame her, as she has been complaining for months about it.
But it all boils down to being able to give better care, and that is what we're all here for anyway. So for now I'm ok with where I am.
I'm making excellent money, have a nice home to live in while I'm here, good neighbors, a three minute drive to work with virtually no traffic! I see wild turkey, deer, get to see and hear lots of birds outside, work with great people, have a CN with not even a hint of a power trip.
A nurse manager who asks me what days I want off, and who I feel comfortable with chatting on the phone, who used to be a traveler also.
Easy going Docs who I have no problem getting orders from, ...geeze NO complaints from me
