    I like that my job feels like it actually matters... I'm not behind a desk in an office with no windows crunching numbers. I like the autonomy, the pay, the hours, and the cool stupid-people tricks I get to see.

    If I could change something, it would be the rude people I interact with. People seem to have forgotten how to just be nice.

    I love that I get to see babies come into the world during the happy endings and help a family through their darkest hour during the not so happy ones

    I like the nurses I work with, but at every hospital I have enjoyed my co-workers. Don't really like med/surg BLAH....but I also enjoy "some" of the patients.

    I like that my job feels like it actually doesn't matter... I'm behind a desk in an office all day with lots of windows and no one dies because of what I do. I like the autonomy, the pay, the hours, monday thru friday weekends and holidays off. It is my cup of tea for sure!

    I'm in school nursing. I love the autonomy of this job.
    I love the children and being able to calm their fears, as well as the parents.
    I like knowing each day I have helped somebody. Love the summer breaks too !

    I love the people I work with. I love knowing that my job makes a difference in the lives of the smallest patients. I have enjoyed watching my patients grow up over the last 12 years.
    I'd change the attitudes of some of the staff who think they're too good to get up from the Internet to help someone else with the job we're all responsible for.

    Self-scheduling is awesome.

    Staffing for acuity would be even better...
