"Quality Nursing Is Not An 8 Hour Shift."

Be wary of patient loads, as many times you can be stretched too thin and as a result, safe and quality care can become compromised.

Registered Nurse (RN):

"Long Hours."
Registered Nurse (RN):
Pros: Independence, interesting, challenging at times.
Cons: Long hours, under staffed and no incentive or bonus for overtime. 16-20 hr days with short staffing I think deserve critical staffing bonus.
