Career Tips


"Accept The Limitations...
Understand that you can only do so much, you job will be a liaison between staff, physicians, families and patients. There will never be a perfect shift. You do the best you can do with the necessary priorities and if that isn't satisfactory to you, then this is not the job for you." (Charge Nurse/Part-Time Pm Supervisor; 2013)
