I was wondering if anyone has ever worked on a kidney transplant floor before as an RN. Anyone care to share their experiences with me, things like...
avg nurse to pt ratio?
skills learned...is it a good floor for learning and doing hands on skills?
are pt loads heavier than a usual medical floor or avg floor (for example?)
is it a good unit to learn time management and confidence as a newer graduate?
typical things seen or done on this type of floor?
tips/tricks for working with this population
what is a typical day on the floor?
*important information to know about kidneys, labs, tests, transplants, meds?
Things that are pertinent to know
I would get 8 twelve hour shifts orientation as a casual nurse
