    I work in a 171 bed hospital which is a regional medical center because it has a NICU. I work on a six bed interventional cardiology unit which right now used as overflow for the cardiovascular stepdown unit. They send the post caths to CVSD and give us inappropriate admits. But that's another thread.

    I work in a 56 bed psychiatric hospital in Arkansas. My specialty is working with acute adult patients (nightshift on the concentrated-care aka "lock-up" unit).

    Several hospitals in a several hundred mile radius have closed their psych floors down so we have been completely full for several months (with patients waiting in ERs for beds).

    After-Hours Occupational Health (set in the ER)...when I'm not taking care of Occ Health pts, I just take care of ER pts. Used to work full-time for the ER, but got burned out VERY quickly...so my current situation is nice...still get to do EVERYTHING, without as much stress and risk to my nursing license.
    Also work occasionally in CICU, ICU, CVRR...
    Would like to try L/D at some point, and maybe Peds or NBN...
