I'm here in AZ, and I'm just have to be asleep, and dreaming all of this! You know the strange thing is...that I had never really considered AZ as a place to take an assignment. Every since I started traveling, I have heard about nurses coming to AZ during the winter months. But it just wasn't something I was interested in doing, or going. Well now I'm here...and I just want someone to pinch me...because I can't believe how GREAT I feel, and how up I have been lately! I'm totally enjoying my time here! Last nite started off as being kind of scary.,..as we only had myself and another RN, but they found us help, and very good help too!
Since we had no CNa, one of the CN nurses from days...stayed over to take VS for us, and the ortho tech, came over to help us out with our 4am VS when she had finished her work, and had some down time. She emptied our hampers and our trash too! I'm just sooo impressed with the teamwork here...I keep waiting for the other shoe to drop so to speak.
Once again, I'm enjoying being a nurse. I'm working with nurses who don't make LPNs feel like second class citizens, and have called two MDs at nite, who were a nice, and didn't act like I was the enemy!!! The ones I have met have been laid back and very friendly!! One even ASSISTED my pt up to the bathroom!!!! I have yet ot have more than SIX pts on nites!!! I came on the other nite to only be given FOUR pts, and got one surgery, and then one admission!!!! Management has just about leaned over backwards to be nice and helpful.!! Where am I??? I have I died and gone to heaven, and I just don't know it???
Anyone want to join me...come on down!!
Beware...If ANYONE wakes me up I'm gonna shoot ya..:chuckle:!!!
