I thought it was time for an "I love my job" post.
I am tweaking a presentation about a specialized ortho procedure that is fairly specific to my hospital. I needed more supporting information at a higher level so I emailed one of the two surgeons that do the procedure.
He emailed me twice with 1-a PP presentation that is an overview of the procedure and then 2-answered questions about some specific medications that are used mostly with this procedure only. Explained things in a way that I can teach it to other nurses comfortably.
Not only do I love working for a teaching hospital, but I love mine the best. Appreciate the time the attendings will take to teach. All one has to do is ask

Yes!! I love positive posts! You sound like you have some fantastic people at your teaching hospital!! I always get so inspired when people take the time to teach!
On my first day my charge nurse introduced me to our really amazing attending trauma surgeon. She took a good 5 minutes to give me advice on starting out, etc.
That same day I got to see her in action and she was incredible. As she was leaving she was walking by my room and made it a point to smile to me and say bye. Now I feel like I always see her walking out as I'm coming in and we've been making it a point to smile and say good morning to each other!
I know it's something small, but I love that at my job everyone treats each other with respect, warmth, and teamwork. Even with kind of odd pairings such as an attending trauma surgeon and a nervous new grad we have that sense of "hey! I recognize you! Good morning, it's great to see you, and have a wonderful day!"
