Quote from Cowboy96
you literally cannot tell me there are certain nursing jobs than are at the same "stress" demand as others like medsurge/ICU. It doesn't even have to be a hospital job, it could be at a clinic or an office Nursing job.
I just need a temporary job nursing related that isn't demanding or stressful. How is that "trollling"?
Every job as a new grad is going to be difficult, but difficult is a subjective term. I don't believe there is an "easy" job in a hospital setting. Are you going to work day shift or night shift? Day shift nurses coordinate care across different areas. Night shift nurses have less resources and those patients do not sleep.
If you want patients who require the least amount of concern, then perhaps you should look at an acute care nursing job. Just remember, the least amount of possible patients is five, and some hospitals require an acute care nurse to take on 7+
Want progressive care with only 3-4 patients? Welcome to the dumping grounds of patients who are on the line between ICU and PCU. Or would you rather ICU with a patient load of 2.
You working at a trauma level I, II, III, IV, or V? That's going to be a big difference in the acuity of patients. Trauma Center Levels Explained - American Trauma Society
Now you've got some things to think about before obtaining a hospital position. Also, it's all busy your first year.
