I'm a new grad who has worked in the hospital for 13 years in management and then as a nurse aid/nurse tech and I'm about to start a new job on an Ortho floor. I turned down a few other jobs to take this one. I've heard nothing but great things about the floor I'm about to go to; from people who work there, know someone who works there, or has visited there. I know it's a "heavy" type of floor, due to the nature of Ortho. We have 48 beds, approximately 10 nurses on each shift and a few aides. I will be working midnights.
Many folk are very unhappy with nursing so I thought I'd flip the script and ask you guys what you like about Ortho? How long have you worked in Ortho? What do you love about it? Why do you stay? It would be great to have a positive thread =)
Thanks in advance, from a very excited grad!!
