this is what I've noticed:
I'm a night tele nurse at a large hospital, and i barly get to sit down - I'm sure day shift is just as busy. so... not easy
I noticed ICU and CCU are less physically demanding as far as running inbetween rooms, but they have their own work cut out for them.
I worked OR for three months, and depending on the procedure - you could be more or less involved. but if you're dazing and the doctor needs something, you'll get an earful. In more demanding cases, just paying attention to something so precise is exhausting - and wearing the TB mask for certain surgeries sucks ass. again... not easy
I speculate are easy: being a 1 on 1 dialysis nurse, not the kind with a bunch of pts. sitting in one of those aurora health booths at big shopping malls (as seen in Milwaukee, WI) we don't have them in Chicago yet. I bet being a gift of hope organ procurment nurse is easy, until you get a call - or have a lot of cases at once. legal nurse consultant is probably a cool job.
maybe I should just be a stay at home dad, that would rule; i should talk to my girlfriend about that.
