Pros: Ample overtime
Cons: Lack of continuing education opportunities
Although basic, delivering Health Care when health care is not a priority is challenging and one has to learn to go with the flow whilst seeking to maintain professional standards. Although part of a team, the reality is that one is truly independent and accountable for one's
own nursing actions, decisions, documentation.
One would wish there could be more coming together outside of work but this does not prove feasible. If one can 'love' one's work, then, even after 12 years I still 'love' my work. My heart will always be with Palliative Care but I do enjoy the challenges in Corrections.
