Hi, I've been a nurse since 1996, working on a med/surg floor. We do mostly orthopedics, but have had it all. Just started doing Bariatric Surg., only 5 done this year. Work at a 175 bed hospital, that still has no union, (voted down once, didn't get to vote- 3x since I've worked here.) I work 12 hr shifts, 3 days in a row mostly. Every three weeks I have 8 days off, which is nice. Looking forward to chatting with people of the same profession and getting their opinions and just having someone to vent with.
