1. Do you love, like or hate your job? Definite like.

2. What field of nursing are you in? Med-Surg.

3. Are you FT, PT, PD? PD.

4. Do you look forward to going to work or dread it? I am barely out of my probationary period, so I still have the mix of excitement and dread. *chuckle.

5. What gives you the most job satisfaction? Seeing patients tucked in, pain-free, content and recovering on my nights. Hearing about our outcomes improving. Receiving little thank you notes in my mailbox or getting hugs from patients on discharge. It all matters.

6. On a scale of 0-10 (0 being least stressful, 10 being most stressful) how stressed does your job make you? On a good day...3, since I'm still new. On a bad day, off the charts - my face gets red, my hair gets wily and I fly up and down the hallways. It's during those moments that I notice the experienced nurses watching me, always slightly amused. :p

7. What causes you the most job stress? Ugh, admissions at or after 6. C'mon! Poor communication between staff, (all members of staff - dietary, housekeeping, PT/OT, MDs, other nurses.)

8. What do you think could make your job better, so you get the most joy and satisfaction out of your work day?

I think if we all treated each other with an ounce more respect and patience, it would make a world of difference. If management wouldn't spend of all their time inventing new forms and uses for our time (which used to be spent on care), that would also be pretty sweet.

JME, of course.

1. Do you love, like or hate your job?

Love the work.

2. What field of nursing are you in?

PACU

3. Are you FT, PT, PD?

FT, 42 hour week.

4. Do you look forward to going to work or dread it?

Not dread. I deeply dislike the company I work for - for various reasons, but primarily because I I prefer bosses with ethics... But when I get to work, and see my colleagues faces, and hear the banter, and exchange a few hugs, I'm smiling again.

5. What gives you the most job satisfaction?

When one of the really stuffy anaesthetists tells us ours is the best PACU he's ever encountered...

6. On a scale of 0-10 (0 being least stressful, 10 being most stressful) how stressed does your job make you?

It's a PACU. Half the time we're so laid back we're almost horizontal. Then the paw-paw hits the fan and the stress levels hit 8; not higher than that though, it's a bad thing if the PACU staff get hysterical... The pre op patients don't like it....

7. What causes you the most job stress?

Not being appreciated by my employer, who wouldn't know a PACU if it hit him in the face, pinched his nose, stuck a tube down his throat and started ventilating him...

8. What do you think could make your job better, so you get the most joy and satisfaction out of your work day?

A total redesign of the current PACU into the layout which I have already given the hospital manager. At present, it's a nightmare.
