Tight knit, supportive environment, good opportunities to assimilate and improve nursing skills
Having worked with this particular group for almost 15 years, I have always found my colleagues generous and supportive, both professionally and personally. The environment is becoming more challenging as the philosophy and role of the unit evolves, but I would regard Ward 37 as a good place to work, especially if a prospective member of the team wishes to learn and expand upon their nursing skills, as the unit admits a variety of patients with a wide range of health issues, chronic illnesses, but primarily acute conditions.
Good supportive colleagues, wide range of experiences.
Very busy (not necessarily a con)
