As a registered nurse, what I love most about working in this field is that it gives me the opportunity to carry out my passion as a nurse. I love what I do. For example, administering medications to my patients and seeing the progress they make even at the end of my shift, holding conversations, and interacting with my patients gives me a sense that I have done my very best. One of my favorite practices to do is place IVs. I love, love, to do this, even when it is challenging. Offering teamwork with my colleagues is wonderful. I love that I am able to provide healthcare, love, and support to people during tough times in their lives. That is the basis of my nursing career.
Tips for a successful nursing career by Donarie:
I feel secure. Whenever I call or text a member of the team, the response is immediate and everything is transparent. There is no beating around the bush. I get my situation sorted out as soon as possible, and I don't have to wait forever. The team is amiable and responsive. If there are any clinicians out there who are looking for a platform like this, I 100% recommend DirectShifts.
“Being a nurse is a highly rewarding career. It is full of opportunities and new challenges each day. Explore your skills to the fullest and perform your job efficiently under all circumstances ”.
