Management looked at me like I was crazy, in fact one nurse manager told me "We don't have a nursing shortage here."
The only reason I am still with the CC is I was an employee at the regional hospital long before the CC took over and I am trying to find a job that fits me better. I have yet to meet any seasoned BEDSIDE nurse who likes the CC. Have also had many conversations with CC physicians who do not like the CC but are fearful to speak up and rattle any chains.
