Hi- Yes I'm working for a large for-profit company at a very busy clinic. I'm several weeks in to the 10-12 week training that includes both classroom and floor work throughout. To be honest I didn't know much about the field before I started but wanted something new after several years of working as a nurse in another field. Now I find that I'm hating the technical aspects of the job and feel very overwhelmed by all the details and the heavy patient loads. The clinic is in compliance with patient-staff ratios but it seems borderline unsafe to me. Workers not getting breaks, lots of shortcuts, stressed out nurses, etc. My co-workers are nice for the most part and the manager seems like a decent guy but is mostly focused on the numbers.
I'm thankful for any thoughts other dialysis nurses out there might have.
