Default What has been your favorite job?

Mine was really when I was working as a District (Home Care) nurse. The best thing was that I worked in my home town and could be at my first patient's within a few minutes, I could spend time with my patients without interuption (no one just calling your name, peeping round the door, calling you on the phone). People got to die in their own beds, bath in their own baths and generally got to feel like they were in charge of their own lives!

This is gonna sound crazy but I really did love my job at that crazy hospital. I miss working with patients more and getting my hands dirty and dealing with the really really sick.

I do love my job now too though! Maybe it's a tie.

I mean, how many Nurses can say they help people make babies for a living??

Julie~

Allowing people to live and die outside of the "temple" must be very satisfying. It would allow a closeness to patients that I would never dream of obtaining because I work in the sterile environment of the temple with rules and regulations.

For right now, I like the temple; but someday, maybe working outside of it would be nice.

If you work in the temple, I must work in the foyer! Actually, my favorite job was one where I did nothing for six out of eight hours in a stand by ER. I crocheted, made memory books and read while my cohort watched Jerry Springer at 0300! I got bored after awhile and went back to a "real" ER, but it was fun while it lasted!

On that same note, My Doctor told me last week that she intends to eventually teach me to do IUIs (IntraUterine Inseminations).
Yeah, Nurses can do that!
This is becoming my favorite job.

Although I'm thoroughly enjoying home health and hospice, my very favorite position was on a locked child/adolescent psych unit. Yeah, it had some horrible moments, but also some of the most rewarding moments of my career.

My current job(s) are my favorite - working in the ER and working for the Medical Examiner. Love them both.
