"Hard underpaid work with moral rewards."
Pros: Watching the progression of patients as they go through their rehab. Day to day and finally see at their discharge a hope for a complete recovery. Just knowing that I had a part in their recovery helps me to not focus so much on the back breaking work at minimum low pay at the same rate of fast food and retail jobs that do not help the sick and injured.

"Challenging yet rewarding."
Pros: I love the fact that I can go to work every day and enjoy what I do. It's hard to see someone you get attached to pass away, but in the end you know you did the best you could for them. It's rewarding when your resident goes home after months of treatment with a smile on their face because thanks to you, the nurses, and therapy...that person can live alone again.
Cons: Death...it's an everyday struggle not to cry with the family members when a loved one dies. Then there's the issue of not enough staff.
