- Jan 12, '11 by ANNIENURSEANGELAt my hospital, My co-workers usually give me the heads up if there is going to be a sick call, or that they have filled up, and need extra help. I dont mind the extra money. I like working with other shifts i dont get to see.

But I love my job... where else would I get called in to do anything from plastic surgery or help deliver a baby.
