In dialysis, PCTs do the cannulations. I love to cannulate and work as a tech occasionally

Another fave is assisting with the drainage of a ginormous abscess! Such good, satisfying fun! 👍

I like changing tubing and having everything all nice, neat and labeled!

I'm almost done with orientation and my preceptor is HARD. But she about cried the other day walking into my room and all my IVPBs were organized together, lines labeled, refill bags on deck, etc. It was such a good feeling. I'm a hoe for an organized ICU room lol

I'm a CNA and I love giving my patients back rubs! And I actually love boosting and repositioning my patients, especially when they get so comfortable they fall asleep before I've even left the room.

I like drawing a med out of a vial. In my job, this is usually for giving TB tests (the PPD comes in a multi-dose vial). It makes me feel like a scientist on TV to stick the syringe in the vial and turn it upside down.

I like seeing stuff come up when I suction an ETT.

I like making my patient a nice bed with clean, matching cute linens. And getting my babies all snuggled up with their positioning aides to make them look all cozy (im in NICU)...it’s very satisfying. NICU nurses are very anal about their linens and bed appearance!

I'm not a nurse quite yet, a soon to be graduate, but I enjoy pushing meds. Not entirely sure why, but I like doing IVP. I also like bathing patients, especially when they resist a bath at first but after they're happy and they feel good.

 

I also enjoy watching people start an IV line. It just looks cool.

Removing stitches and pain management. I like finding the right way to give pain meds that reduces the patient's pain when other nurses haven't been able to!
