Recently spoke with a newly hired RN at my hosital. He has been a nurse for 5 years. the first two on a very busy tele unit. The last three he was an occupational health nurse working night shift in a huge factory. According to the union contract the company had to staff a nurse 24/7 to treat minor injuries and respond to emergencies. He had his own little office outfitted with a phone, desk, computer and cot, yes a cot. During the three years he worked there he recieved exactly TWO calls. Both times to apply a bandaid. He did put his time to good use, earning both a BSN and MSN online during his work hours.
I asked why he would leave a job like that? Bordom was the answer. I asked if his position was still open
