"The hours and they constantly change."
Charge Nurse (LPN):
If you have no experience and are fresh out of nursing school, don't specialize in one field. Get your feet wet in one specialization and learn how to work somewhere else and becom specialized in that field. My 1st job was a dialysis nurse but once I was comfortable there, I got a job at a nursing home to learn how to work as a nurse and learn to charge. Nursing homes are the only places that I know of where you can learn the art of charging others. Once comfortable there, I sought and obtained a job at a hospital on med/surg floor where I learned how to manage 1-7 patients in an acute setting where I could actively start IVs, IV drips, manage IV pumps etc.
