Just graduated in June and I chose not to work in a hospital. I worked in a hospital as a CNA and ER tech, but really felt I wanted something different.
I work as an RN in a residential school for children with Autism and some level of either Mental Retardation or some other form of neurological deficit (shaken baby syndrome, etc.) I over see about 11 kids and our client/staff ratio is at most 3:1, not including nursing staff. My duties are NURSING duties only. I pass meds, make assessments as needed, tracheostomy care/suctioning, straight caths for the kids who cannot empty their bladders, blood draws, g-tube feedings, and other various nursing tasks. I am not pulled in a million directions and have a lot of time to bond with my kids. I love it
