Home Health (Hospice)
love the job you do i have not worked in a hospital setting for more than 9yrs i currently work in home health, when i did work in the hospital setting I gained all my experience there, I loved it but the shifts became challenging for me due to my children being small.
Medical-Surgical (MS, Med-Surg)
We have a strong sense of unity and team work. It's not an easy unit to work on but the support from the staff is excellent and makes the job easier.
The work is challenging but you will learn a lot.
Labor & Delivery (L&D)
Good hospital. Understaffed. Inexperienced charge nurses
Neonatal ICU (NICU)
Be aware that you will have to be placed on-call twice a month whether you want to or not and whether they tell you from the beginning or not. Also, the unit tends to make time-consuming, mostly unnecessary changes at the last minute, right when you're getting ready to leave.
It seems like the rules and regulations are disposable and whatever the unit thinks is convenient to follow at the particular moment that is what goes. Patient to nurse ratio varies from 4-8 depending on the budget of the night ( it seems that way.) Management are not even nurses and expect miracles from us.
