It was very upbeat, fast paste, learning experience.
Depending on how many patients we had per shift and how many were total care and what floor needed help the most is how our shift would go daily. I got to learn the EKG machine and how to strap it on a patient. Co-workers were nice to work with and we helped one another PRN. Hardest part of the job was if we lost a patient to death, it was very hard to learn how to cope with. The most enjoyable part of the job was that I got to meet many different people and got to be a part of their recovery. They came in sick and left with smiles on their faces for the most part.
