I am a new graduate nurse who will be starting my first job in the hospital on a rehab unit. I am very excited, but am curious of many things. So for all you rehab nurses who work in the hospital setting:what does your day typically include? alot of heavy lifting? how many patients? variety of age, or mostly elders? alot of tube feeds? alot of dressing changes? toileting patients often? hoyers?ive heard rehab nursing is truly hard work compared to med-surg... and its kind of scaring me. so why is it hard?
