    I have done camp nursing, community nursing, worked through agencies.

    Currently, I'm working on a medicine floor. This floor deals with mostly with cardiac, respiratory and GI conditions. It is a heavy floor. I have actually resigned from this unit. I have one more shift left.

    Next week, I will start my training in the ICU at another hospital.

    I've been in LTC for 8 years. Presently the charge on a 60 bed unit, 11-7, in a 200 bed facility.
    Adrienurse, what a beautiful facility you have. How old is it? Looks new. Nice outdoor areas?
    Hapeewendy, It sounds like you and your mom are pretty close. Will you miss her if you move to the states? Don't mean to be nosey.

    Maggie. RHC was built in 97. It's nice to work in such a beautiful place. Only drawback is all the confused residents think they are in a hotel! LMAO. It has very nice outdoor grounds as well.

    work on a mostly surgical med-surg unit. we get hysters, choles, appeys, colon resections etc. oh, and my favorite(not) gastric bypass. we also get the traumas that don't need to go to the unit. we are the biggest floor in the hospital so we get a lot of overflow with high census.

    I work 2 full time jobs. I am the ER nurse manager for an ER with 8 beds. I am a real "working manager" I work with the policies and memos that I write. I live by my rules. I am also the Cheif Flight nurse for Eagle Med. I must live with the memos of others so I know both sides of administration and I beleive it makes me a better manager for it as well. But patient care comes first then what managment wants. I also work OB.... And there is nothing natural about it....
