    FT I work for a two campus (3 miles apart, one ~220 beds, one ~110 beds), corporate owned, for profit community hospital. I work for education. My primary functions are to coordinate the new grad program and the online learning program. I also teach people how to use the computer and the order entry system. A big part of what I do falls into "other duties as assigned."
    Per diem I work as a day shift house supervisor at a level 2 trauma center.
    The two hospitals are in the same area but serve vastly different populations. The two are about the same size, pretty much the same services but how it plays out is quite different. I find it interesting.
    My background is primarily Intensive Care and DOU. I really, really like medical patients and have always disliked surgical patients.
    In another life, I have done information system support.

    Good question--where do I work? Multiple places...long term care for children, home private duty, and agency. Worked 10 years at a pediatric hospital, trying now to switch to adult either in ortho or rehab. Agency nursing is wearing me out. Thought I was doing it as a good deed to nursing and my family, but now just really exhausted and feeling under appreciated.

    I work in a rural hospital with 14 acute beds, 3 OB beds, outpt surgery, ER and LTC. We RN's do a little bit of everything. And there is only one RN in the ER 24 hours a day. The doc sleeps next door overnight. Never a dull moment around here.
