I learned a lot from my internship at Roswell.

Roswell is a respected institute with high standards of care for its patients; I was proud to complete my internship here. The experience I gained in emerging chemotherapy treatments and supportive medications is invaluable.

Hope, Music, Activity..always a sense of purposefulness

A typical day @ work would be the same for any clinical setting.I learned there's always a chance for a miracle, extended time, but also, most cases in UGI did not have a good outcome.My co-workers helped each other in order to maintain a good flow for the day. Breaks , lunches, and vacation time were offered in a fair and timely fashion.Our Nurse manager always availed herself to us. She was visible on unit a great majority of time.Hardest part of the job was watching our patients decompensate, and eventually pass away..You just can't stop yourself from becoming attached to them. Sometimes they were people we knew, our friends, and family.Most enjoyable part of job was being NICE, cheerful, helpful, COMPASSIONATE, understanding , and trying to aleviate patient/family bitterness, sadness ..and mostly fear.

Excellent high standart, magnet facility, an awesome place to work

A a typical day at work include; patient assessment, patient education, starting an IV, transport patient to procedure, then patient assessment post procedure, more education, Discharge information, evaluation and setting up homecare if needed. Learning continues with new procedures and new equipment. Charge nurse responsibilities with rotation. Coworkers worked together to accomplish a comon goal. The hardest part of the job was realizing the patient has a terminal disease and having compation for patients that you briefly come to know and genuinely cared about. The most enjoyable part of working with cancer patients was seeing the client go into remission, receiving good news about their disease and knowing you made a difference in their life.

Good working relationships

Management is sub par but overall a good place to work. # 12 hour shifts is nice. Critical care training for free and able to get OCN and other courses through hospital.
