Does anyone really like nursing...be honest! I work for several agencies and go to many, many places. To find satisfied staff is near impossible. The facilities are always short (esp. cnas) and never call an agency to fillin...they just dump the extra workload on who they have and needless, to say, the morale is very low. Nurses are having entire floors with sometimes over 40 pts and expected to do everything....but doing agency I just do my meds and treatments (unless the pt load is heavy..then just meds) and the staff does all the other work i.e admissions, discharges, editing, summaries, inservices, dealing with care planning and the entire administration crew.
the only ones that are making any money are the facilities. It really stinks and the population you have to deal with can sometimes be too much!
they are demanding,needy, abusive, noncompliant, slow, have offensive odors and can be mean and nasty. If you are staff no matter how long you have been at their place at any time they can show you the door...there is no security.
everyone should do agency and pay for your own benes with the extra money....What do YOU think?
