Working as a nurse in a busy hospital can be exciting, challenging, and at times, exhausting. A hospital floor is a dynamic and fast paced environment, where many patients may be relying on a limited number of nurses for care. It requires stamina and a positive attitude.

Nurses in a hospital will see a variety of patients with a number of ailments and needs, depending on the department. Some departments are busier than others, and sometimes, it can simply depend on the day.

Hospital nurses should expect long hours on their feet, and they need to stay on their toes to meet the challenges that can be presented throughout each shift.
