Surgery: Time is of the essence..
RNBN General Duty Nurse (Former Employee) – Winnipeg, MB – 20 April 2013
I loved this unit. It was my first nursing job and once again I was part of a great team, which made even a hectic day worth coming back. I used every skill that I had learned in Nursing school, it was perfect for a new grad. I was caring for individuals of all ages from minor/major burns to radical head and neck reconstructive surgery. The hardest part of my job was lack of breaks and staying overtime all the time. We had CRN's (Clinical Resource Nurses) that we could go to if we were not sure about something regarding our patient. The most enjoyable part of my job was wound care. I loved doing dressing changes and teaching my patients about preventing infection and how to care for it once they are discharged.
great team of girls that i worked with. great salary/benefits. fun atmosphere.
lack of breaks, staying overtime most shifts, less approachable management.
